My ability to love
Is sometimes tested
Giving of myself without protection
Attracting the fundamental nature of people that are not forthcoming
I ask myself why?
Is it the yin and yang of the spiritual forces?
The wolf that eats the sheep
Maybe it’s the spirit of Christ that resonates in me
The enemy wanting to destroy GODS creation
Denying my predestination to come to full term
Fighting to align myself with my creator’s will for me
Praying that victory will be on my side
Milk no longer I require
Spiritual enrichment enables me to eat meat
Converting retained bones into spiritual arrows
