“Behind the entryway”

“Behind the entryway”

In your heart & soul, behind the entryway,

.. there is a warm and delicate spot 

.. where fortunes recollected are kept,

carrying a grin to your lips .. a tear to your eye,

.. what's more, dreams for you to appreciate.

Indeed, in your heart, behind the entryway,

there lie recollections of a time passed by,

.. an extraordinary moment, a caring word,

.. an idea, held like a delicate embrace,

.. a delightful smile, there for you to recall.

Indeed, in your heart, behind the entryway,

an exceptional spot will consistently be,

.. of exciting trips .. far behind in the past,

.. of a period spent sitting unobtrusively,

.. having known the joy of one's organization.

Indeed, in your soul, behind the entryway,

friends & family never fail to remember,

.. to remind you from where you came,

.. also, direct where your fate lies,

recall forever their confidence in you.

Indeed, in your heart, there is an entryway,

where cherishing companions come wooing,

with great affection to comfort you,

.. also, offer delicate useful tidbits,

to support you in this period of scarcity.

Indeed, in your heart, behind the entryway,

.. recall as the seasons

.. keep in mind, dreams resemble seasons

.. coming, going ..

.. life will go on ..

Similar to the sun, you will smile once again .. with radiance.

Indeed, in your heart, behind the entryway,

.. you have a warm and exceptional spot,

.. to recall every one of those prized moments.

Try not to neglect .. what is held in your hands.

For certain fantasies are simply lost in the idea,

They gradually disappear like a dusty breeze.

.. Coming .. going .. and then they are gone.

In any case, dreams are not intended to be that way.

Dreams can be genuine and convincing,

The solid & submitted ones will not sleep.

Try not to close your own entryways,

.. go on and follow your fantasies .. your dreams.

God will stroll with you & when you sit down,

He will look after you.

At the point when you awaken .. He will bless you.

.. by Omar Farooq ..

This beautiful poem inspired me .. reminded me of our fragility & the fractal state of humanity

*We are as “human onions” .. born into a hurting world

Our outer skin .. we show as pearled

But peel it back .. a netherworld

Many layers .. many fears

Many burdens .. many tears

Buried feelings .. hidden scars

Wounded hearts .. lives are marred

See the pride .. in darkness hides

See the walls .. I’ve built inside

See the lies I tell myself

How I practice inner stealth*

We are "broken" beings .. hurt & hurting people who often “close entryways”

Closed entryways keep others out .. can keep us from knowing our true self.

Self-protection produces aching architects.

How often people are unknown .. even to those closest in their life.

Unknowing might be caused by “closed entryways” .. yours or others .. or both

We all have wounds .. carry unique personal baggage .. impairments that “close entryways”

.. lack of desire

.. lack of effort

.. lack of honesty

.. lack of awareness

.. lack of inner depth

In truth, only God .. truly knows you. Your Maker knows you better than you know yourself.

We humans practice "inner stealth" .. to fool others .. fool our self.

.. bar access to our deepest places

.. bar entry to other people and to God

.. our hearts & souls .. where secrets are kept

.. where motives are hidden .. even in dark corridors

.. our spirt is unwilling .. at times we argue with our self .. argue with God

Fay Vietmeier, This sonnet is an organic product developed which is sustained by my dearest soul friend and mentor, Fay. It is a result of her coaching and help, I emerged from such emotions to stand up and share. All credit goes to Fay, and it is committed to her.

Roberto De la Cruz Utria I hope you will forgive Roberto for taking so long to respond to your rich .. very poetic comment You said beautifully; In our long journey through life, we are all marked, we all go through dark moments, as you have said, but only hope and overcoming obstacles will mark the way, in the search for light. We live embraced by paradoxes, and perhaps fractal behaviors, which often shape "human onions" We wish and the time we reject We hope and also neglect We hoped to collect without first cultivating We would like to be without deserving We long for power without leading. Your words inspired me to create a poem .. using your thoughts (even your words ;~) I will post in the near future (perhaps in a writing or on it's own) I'm calling it "In search of Light" .. it will be to your honor ;~) my bee-friend.

The poem reveals our inner self and its constituent parts without revealing exactly what is within us only we can do that, should we so wish so to do.
