Lost soul

They tried to tie me down

And tell me to silence

These ferverent longings of my soul

Claiming it was all madness to feel this way

Tying me up in knots of frustration and fury

And deeper shame

Sending me deeper and deeper into exile

With their claims

That who I was and what I sensed and longed for

Was a threat

Most certainly in vain

And it was not so much even the things they said

(Although those were bad enough)

But the looks they gave

The ever so silent gestures and withholding

Of support and kindness and tenderness

And so it was I learned to hide

Who I was and what I felt so deep down inside

And so I became in many ways

A lost soul wandering



In fields of hardened clay

But in all of my wandering

My deep soul never stopped longing

For the taste of rain

And for the freedom from that pain

Of spiritual exile

That finally came

With the deluge

When it finally began

My lost soul to reclaim

And with the down pour came

Not as expected

Endless skies of grey

But gorgeous luminous sunshine

Revealing the soul’s

True nature

Both bitter and sweet

All enlivened

By the rain

"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.
