One Soul’s Evolution

When

The

Words

finally break through the walls of fear, and turn on the powers of Love

that a lifetime in guilt, lies, and shame have hidden from you, then the

silence

becomes

music.

You’re

free

to let

Faith

Hope

and

Love

infect

your

soul.

    What a lovely piece.

    Fan-flippin’-tastic!!! I loved this from the very first word. Such an important message delivered in such an impressive fashion. If I was ever to get a poem tattooed over my heart, this might very well be the one. Great work! 🙂

    • Carolyn says:

      WOW!!! If you get this tattooed on your chest I wanna see it 😀 (My smile is way to big for a 😀 to express)! I don’t know what to say except, thank you, you’ve really touched my soul with that sentiment. ❤

  4. Strong message in a strong form

  5. Beautiful. I love the idea behind this. Well done.

  6. deanabo says:

    This is beautiful!

    I love the formatting here. And the message of freedom to let all the good stuff in.

    I love the ending – infection has a negative connotation, however, in this instance, it’s an awesome thing – I’d love to have my soul infected with faith, hope and love!

    • Carolyn says:

      My relationship with God has been a very slow, and progressive “trust” issue. It took me a long time to get over Sunday School memorization, and just “make it personal.” I totally love the idea that someone who commented even ROCKED the notion of getting this poem tattoed on his chest over his heart! Thats about how off the wall I am, I could never fit in at a mainstream church 😀

  9. unevenstevencu says:

    yeah someitmes splinters can become an infection – nice use of words to make a cross

  10. Great use of the word. Thanks for linking up!

  11. I enjoyed this and the word formation is great i love the symbolism.

  12. rangewriter says:

    Eewww! I like this. It’s very creative.

    • Carolyn says:

      LOL thank you! I read you submitted post too, and LOVED it. I can’t wait to have 80 years of life experiences…some day, I’m going to talk somebodys ear off telling them. One of my grandmas best gifts to me was when she talked mine off telling me everything ❤

  13. habibadanyal says:

    Beautiful and true!

    • Carolyn says:

      🙂 It’s inspiring to know that this has touched people’s hearts. I’ve found myself coming out of years of anger and self hatred, in the last two years since my divorce. Music has been a tremendous source of healing for me. There came a moment not so long ago, that The Words clicked….the air around me doesn’t sting so bad, you know?

  14. Nicely illustrated message.

  15. Sini says:

    Reading this over and over again, I have come to view the picture of how God’s words do break the rage and despair and open the doors to healing,
