Sanity and Sorrow…

Sanity and Sorrow

Evidence clear about an unwanted Soul,

upon conception the possessor wanted to

cast it away, fear or greed.  One life could

not see a future, yet starvation by the mother

did not kill the seed, not fear… self-greed.

 

Why did the tiny Soul survive, destiny or fate;

it survived a life without love never held by the

mother with her heart filled with hate.  The new

Soul born within a life of oppression from the

moment of birth; scared and burdened with

emotional wounds throughout its journey on earth.

 

All of its tomorrows’ found the Soul’s path long and

steep; it searched a lifetime to find out why the mothers’

anger ran so deep, to the moment it laid the mother in

the ground.  Truth in its abandonment never found,

this abused Soul tries to remember that sanity and sorrow

are closely bound.

    Profoundly sad…yet, the desire for LIFE is strong…makes me think of the passage in Isaiah 49: “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
    and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
    Though she may forget,
    I will not forget you!”
    I think there is a Higher Power—a God who cradles us all…as Kahlil Gibran wrote: “And when you love you should not say,
    “God is in my heart,”
    but rather, “I am in the heart of God.”
    I think the Seed is in the Heart of God…and it is loved…
    I think when a Mother is incapable of loving her child, it is because the Mother is suffering and afraid…and, perhaps, has been hurt too much and cannot find her way…
