Joy

Faith exists in the mind, as human thought with use of written word, this can be taught Joy finds it's sanctuary, within every heart The fleeting control of this, we have no part It's source can't be held or bought or sold this bliss can be evoked by young and old humans label things they don't understand as I had done, till I felt real pain in his hand I felt love, hope and joy torn from my heart life is beyond human control, he did impart I give my present, future and immortal soul the path to his wisdom, is under his control It's delight, seen in the present here on earth It's now not past or future, you will feel mirth My heart felt the loss of love, hope and joy This Idea of being in control, he did destroy only in complete release, could I find his joy its blissfulness is within the heart of this boy No feeling, belief, or ideas, to lose or employ It's in tears, smiles of women, man, girl or boy I didn't loose my joy, I had really lost myself My heart filled with hate, a sinner in oneself A hard lesson for humans, yet all must learn On a path, no control, it's heaven we all yearn
