CASING CLOTHES

Walking about, neither here nor there Just doing life, anywhere Finding it to be...such a weighty affair Throwing off childhood shackles Silencing insecurities cackles The fire still sparks and crackles ....even in the embers Empty, full, that's the rule That binds me to this sorrow Lather, rinse, repeat Today, and again tomorrow Over and over, up and down To this jumbled rhythm of deafening sound At some point, I stopped the meaning For the matter seemed to be deeming ...insane In the process, of coming out I went in....to an abyss Now at peace in the dark But feeling like there's something I miss How can there be lack When love is ever present I believe it's the war against fear That is tedious and very unpleasant ....icky, sticky, stinky, filth Walking with family in a mall To the left, I heard a call There, hanging on a rack Was a perfect blue dress, that took me back ...to me In a instant, all of my thought gathered For a "Come to Jesus" meeting Joy is in eternal peace That can't be influenced by the feelings beating, cheating, then permanently fleeting Joy stays It knows It grows No matter what the soul goes through Joy holds the purity of blue That reflects LOVE in the expression of you Written by Trudy Schrader on 08/04/2021 Note: Blue is love.
