'Soul - ly You' (a poem)

As comfortable as I may have appeared in the past
The images seen were merely facades.
The mirrors an object, the truths never told
So by the grace of my Lord I begin to unfold.
Many things in my life play significant roles
I've striven to save others, and now need to save my soul.
Thus, receiving contentment, peace, joy and love
Are truly great blessings, solely granted from Above.

Reading last two lines of your poem made me to recall my poem, written long back, and which is, perhaps, in resonance to your concluding lines. Here's the poem:

The Elevated Favors

When the heavens do bestows favors
‘tis the soul so dearly blessed and triumphant
And such is secret grace most important
that shows the way in life’s misery,
lends wisdom for the minds to see,
and, in truth, inspires to live best
Lo! Many subjects beyond common reach—
out of real philosophy are made known.


Kind regards,
