Resilient Spirit

Seeds of hope

Rife with promise

Bear the fruit of my longing

Choke the vines of doubt that linger

Just below the surface



Words of love

Lilting lyrics

Soothe the sting of my failing

Pierce the boils of hate that fester

Just below the surface



Song of peace

Voice of vision

Hoist high my listing spirit

Right the sails through seas that rage

Just below the surface



Waves of joy

Sweet tidal surge

Wash clean the stain of sorrow

Smooth the edge of jagged shells

Just below the surface



Supple spirit

Lithe and strong

Renew my sense of purpose

Guide my search for hidden wealth

Just below the surface
