It only takes a moment in your life when you finally hear the voice of your soul crying out to you. It may be time to release the silence that roars in your head, the creativity that sleeps and the passion that aches from within unfulfilled! It matters not if you are a man or a women but I imagine women slowly walk away from their voice of truth, their desire to create and what the passion in their heart is that needs to be shared by the responsibilities of their life. My belief stems from my own life experience as a woman.
I was thinking of my life and the changes I have created these past years last week when I realized I am exactly where I am meant to be and these are the words below that I wrote in the form of a poem. Married forty-one years to my one and only childhood boyfriend we have shared a lifetime of love, loss, tears and fears. However, I believe his greatest fear had to be when my soul cried out to me and I began to love me, to know my truth, to discover there was more in life for me. He struggled with this change and still must wonder where I go to but I have learned I have not walked away from him or the life we have created together but away from that which no longer nourished my soul!
When My Soul Cried Out To Me
There was a young girl, innocent and pure
She fell in love one day and never imagined more
A life began filling her days with household chores
She had been taught well to love these chores and never, ever asked for more!
The babies arrived; 1, 2, 3, 4 and she discovered she had locked a door.
There was an inner part of her that felt that there had to be more?
A quick look in the mirror filled her with no resemblance of the girl from yesterday.
Then her soul cried out to her, “look, there is more, you must begin today…”
She fumbled and stumbled fearing to have to leave all that she knew
As the voice within never gave up its call to her to begin anew.
She felt pulled by an unknown force to say “goodbye” to her life!
The journey began for her to find her way back to herself which filled her with strife.
Never faltering to remain she moved forward for her soul ached from within everyday
As her soul whispered, “look for the mysteries that have been locked away…”
A passion for knowledge, sharing and loving all, she discovered one day
As many believed her insane for the changes she craved by the desires that filled her with wanting to open the door!
The years have flown by, the children are grown as she grew into herself with love.
She discovered a cycle, a pattern, a cry from her soul that there is still to be more…
