The seeker

"The seeker"

Born into mystery, fears turning to sin
I searched east and west then for answers within
for the place of true knowing was never in sight
So I starred at the darkness knowing not who to fight
Can the truth lead to freedom, are there answers at last
redemption for all of the deep sorrows past.
So I sought what I knew and found nothing at all
I was left bare and broken so alone by the fall
Yet my hope found was in learning that beauty is real
its not by ones mind but ones heart that we feel
only this way comes knowing such a gift from above
is the secret that frees us from fear is true love...
