My Journal

By: Sheila Henry

Inner Life
blossoms on
pages and
creativity spreads open
like budding
flowers on a Spring morn

In humility I share
secrets of myself
my feelings and emotions
of doubts of fears
of achievements of dares
being comforted by the
strokes of my pen

I bare my soul on the page
revealing stories of reality
that made up my day
I share these things to my inner life
in this sacred space I surrender all

It’s where answers lie in wait
to questions of daily challenges
‘What should I do about this
or What should I do about that?’
and as if through a higher power
between thoughts and words
I sow my outer life alive
calmly guided by
my inner one.
