~ The Narrow Roads Discerning ~

~ At last! ~ At last! As a sweet rejoinder to Him my soul cried out aloud, at last, as I marveled in the benignity of my Lord. For imparting to me, the liberal blessing of my life ... and for giving me His eternal assurances. For delivering me ... returning me to a veracious, and overt; amenable position-of-hope-and faith in Him. Yes-for-purging-and lifting; empowering and molding ... maturing me, indemnifying me in His certitude, and enduring graciously the-horrid-penalty; of my willful prides contumacy. For ne’er to trammel the ambling of my committed volition. In the greater wisdom and grace of their instruction I willingly did revolt in sheer defiance before His tender eyes of mercy. (Amid the futile campaign, (of my own bitterness)). Distinguishing only those weary days apart from the welcome and gentle fervor, of His embrace; and so, through this detachment, and His patient hands my heart’s longing was brought to know compassion and to be absolvitory. As written on my heart, and being able ... today, and thankful to Him to see. Of the many roads I have peregrinated down, illuminated upon this narrow path, of God’s all-inclusive way ... it is all I ~ have come to truly discern, of an aeolian peace. ~
The words of this poem, form the reference in shape and idea; of a heavenly amphora.
