Don’t tell me I need to accept these shackles

When for all of my life I have been constrained

Reigned in by this strait jacket of normality

Does the authentic soul

Not long so desperately for its freedom

From this life of gloom

In a place where colour bled from life

Due to mediocrity

When we were told as children

Only to behave

What of the joyous soul that sang

Sounding its note

From deep within our marrow

What of the angels we saw all around us in our youth

Exactly when and where did they turn into devils

An angry angel becomes the devil

And we are poisoned by fear

When really love is the only answer

Why did we believe their lies?

So please do not tell me

I need to accept these shackles

Because I was not born

For slavery

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
