My Heaven Is My Happiness

My heaven is my happiness.
A sacred place I’ve searched for all of my life.
A freedom I can’t really describe,
But a freedom I’m grateful to have.
My heart and shoulders feel light at times,
As if I’ve been reborn.
I can see the world with new eyes,
And experience what life has to offer with open arms.
And then heaven’s eyes stop watching over me.
Just as my heart feels light sometimes,
At times my heart feels heavy.
It weeps as it’s full of sorrow.
Just as my shoulders feel light at times,
Sometimes I feel that the load is too much to bear.
Sometimes I feel trapped.
I feel stuck.
Feels like my time could be up.
Feeling faint as more beautiful bodies lie cold in the dust.
My heaven is my happiness.
But when will I ever leave hell?
You tell me.
And tell me the truth.

A Traveled Road

Dear Subscribers,

This is my final poem for the 2012 year, and it is my hope that I remain inspired to write more poetry in 2013 and beyond. I want to take this time to thank all of my subscribers for taking the time to visit my site, subscribe to my posts, like my poems, and leave encouraging comments. I truly appreciate it, and all of you.

Such a long road traveled
Towards awaiting happiness.
Could see it from afar,
And was close within reach.
Held out the deserving hands
To receive God’s gifts.
Heavenly they are,
As they beam like the golden sun.
His love engulfed the body,
And saturated the mind.
A smile was seen upon the face,
Because the happiness that was awaiting,
Was finally within the hands.
Happiness was stored within,
And illuminated outward upon praising His holy name.
