Soul. There is Light in the Eyes

by Delacroix

Soul by R A Lovelace

There is light in the eyes

of our souls far from darkness

It’s eternal and guides

as we move aimed

at brightness.

It keeps time not delayed

existence connected.

What we see, what we do,

what we learn

is protected.

Wonder gives energy

we gain as we travel

and kindness is that

which will never


Love keeps us honest

and hate keeps us blackened.

When crying brings fear

no one knows

what will happen.

Our living brings lessons

that carry us forward

no answer is obvious

No learning is


What we learn

we take with us,

what we teach gives the right

to continue our glide

as we move toward the light.

Brightness in living

is evident to all

no good we create

is ever

to small.

But we must believe

though it isn’t apparent

that we have planned

to arrive here

to learn is inherent.

All beings we contact

all beings that thrive

offer some touch

that help us


Through our eyes

is our soul

It’s passion displayed

is honored by living

not blessed by the slave.

It offers us solace

and can move at

light’s speed

it is a gift that fulfills

a very great need.

To deny it’s existence

to throw water on flame

Is slapping the face

of who honors

our name.

That folly will only

show darkness the way

to hearts that are beating

in those

here to stay.

When darkness and light

mix in our existence

our lives end up murky

and life does bring


My energy hopes

that all beings I contact

bring light and not darkness

with life’s lessons

I've been involved in major criminal investigations, had a problem with addiction, rescued people in need and welcomed new babies into the world. Now I've decided to reinvent myself and write,
