This is a short poem about those internal echoes, why we have them, and what they mean

Echoes we sometimes hear in life, we will never be able to control reawakening in us a spiritual side, putting us in touch with our soul much like an internal echo, signaling us, trying to get our attention Heaven's attempt to stir us up, forcing upon us a spiritual reflection Echoes always come unannounced, yet we sense they emanate from within consciously we're drawn to this new world, a somewhere we've never been our thoughts focus us on our past, with memories that can capture our mind sometimes overcome with sadness, and needing recollections to be defined Echoes causing us to relive our past, yet better equipped to get over the pain removing this sadness or shame, and permanently giving it this new domain examining the cause of why we felt so plagued, we want to know the reason knowing as human beings, our trials and tribulations change with the season Echoes of confusion and pain, replaced with an unbound understanding and joy thoughts no longer empowered, our harmony and solitude no longer to destroy the state of mind that we keep, our true reality, is the place where we take shape but know that our thoughts, will forever be our test, from them there is no escape We hear what we want to hear, and we see what we want to see, this is within our power the echoes we choose to acknowledge or to ignore, we alone are the keeper of the tower the forces of evil are real, empowered to test us, attacking us with these thoughts we keep so remove them from your memory, and find your eternal happiness, before that final sleep

    Vienna, thank you for your kind words. It makes me feel very good to give pleasure to others by sharing a little part of me. My writing is very much a part of my soul. Recently, I wrote "You're a Poet" and posted it on this site as a dedication to all of the poets here. I hope it too will be received with such enthusiasm. Again, thanks for your words of support and encouragement and I wish you much success in all of your endeavors as well. 2bpositive, always.....
