I've been writing for over 40 years. I enjoy meditation and am interested in both western and eastern spiritual practices.

A journey of life
"Redemption" by Yvon
I've been looking for the answers to questions in my head
I've been looking for something beyond the living and the dead
I've been seeking out the knowledge that blinds my simple mind
I've been seeking for the truth but lies are all I find

In the shadows of my doubt I have come against a wall
Searching in the cave of life my soul can't read it all
There are secrets to be revealed in the flickering of light
Ego binds my soul diminishing all sight

Seeking for the truth just beyond my grasp
The future is so faint when I live within the past
Reaching for a foothold in this present moment of time
The truth won't reveal it's self as my story does unwind

Where do I go from here?
The shadows creeping near
In the darkness of my soul
There is no place to go

I turn towards the heavens
But the gates won't let me in
I falter and fall down
Drowning in my sins

The darkness pulls me by the feet into a Godless hell
I battle for my soul's redemption and climb out of this well
Standing on the precipice the abyss calls out my name
I plead with the Lord of Love who casts away my shame

This moment of truth has saved my battle ridden soul
A weary life moves onward as it strives to reach its goal
Answers are now exposed in the flickering of light
Diminishing the darkness to reveal a holy sight

Author Notes
We all have battles with darkness, whether we survive them sometimes are not to us alone.
