My Unique Gift

Unique gift bestowed on me
The essence of joy came to be
As I melted in the mystery 
I stopped just looking; learned to see

The substance of my faith it grew
I learned something that was so true
Obscure truth now don’t come through
Weight of opinions, I don’t accrue

Life’s core has shown its self, and I
Without fool’s pressure, can’t deny
That though the truth once passed me by
Now I know where it does lie

Character flawed, though once was me
Now I have changed, I’ll always be
A man ruled by loves mystery
With heart wide open, soul set free

Thank you Lindsay. Back when I suffered very badly from PTSD I decided to work on my self enquiry and tis made me become the way I am now. The doctor told me I could never get better, but I proved him wrong. Thank you for you kind comments, my friend....Peter
