EMOTIONAL BARRICADES
(4/13/18)

tugged

twisted

tormented
in every fashion
by our
fears

by our
angers

by our
desires

we suffer
so greatly
for them

because
of them

we fail to see
the lessons
that they really
can be

they are all
symptoms
of the world

affecting
our spirits
to the greatest
degree

but they are
not
the disease

self
is our sickness

the opposition
to others

the separation
from God

emotions
are our warning
signs

telling us
we have strayed
from the path
of divine love

helping us
along
our way

not meant
to slow us

no need
to stop

to consider
each one
ad nauseam
