every day people
trying to connect
to themselves, each other.
Something. Anything. Nothing
rings true until
something becomes real
gives Purpose. Meaning. Life.

Today I
met a woman
whom I’ve seen often
but saw for the first time.
Seeing. Connecting. Knowing
the depths of
a soul touched
by Fear. Turmoil. Despair.

I saw an
emptiness waiting
for meaning to fill
the expanse within
Barren. Abandoned. Alone
the soul longs
to connect to a part
of Creation. Spirit. Design.

Deep within
a desperation
escapes yearning to
become all that it can be.
Anxious. Eager. Hungry
for that which
only an All-Powerful God
can Complete. Fill. Satisfy.

Quote: “I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Writing Prompt: What message is yearning inside you? What is something you know deep in your soul? Don’t look for someone else to describe it. You do it. Write it down. Write it as a poem, a sentence or even just a string of words. Just make sure you get it to paper. (Author: Michael McFadden)
