Saving Souls

[ 6 ] Comments

Joseph said we

Are meant to save

Souls.

 

I feel inadequate

In the task.

 

How can I save

Another,

When I feel I am the one

Who requires salvation?

 

Yet the Lord says

It will be given

Even as we give.

 

So perhaps

The more saving I

Need.

The more salvation

I ought to share.

About MSKeller

Marsha Steed Keller (Th'Muse) "When I get a little money, I buy books, if there is any left, I buy food and clothes." --Desiderius Erasmus. This defines a part of Marsha's psychology and intent fairly well. When she was a child she says that people asked what super-power she would desire. She replied, "To know what is true, always." It hasn't changed much since then. Marsha cares more about intent than result; more about understanding than agreement and more about good questions than finding all the answers. She defines her best blessings as people (Family and Friends), ideas and beauty. She is highly visual, teaches voice and piano and enjoys her Life/Relationship coaching immensely. She has a BA in Psychology and an AA in Ballroom Dance. Life is an adventure to be lived in the moment and shared with the world. She considers being asked to write with this amazing group a high honor.

    Thank you. I needed this today. What a wonderful way to explain the beauty that comes in sharing what we need most.

      Thank you for reading and commenting Julia! Sometimes we forget that writers write. . . to share, and when you comment and share back, it encourages writers to well. . . keep writing!

        I think that is especially true of poets, who take a long time slowly crafting a poem, and then put it out in the world to share. Sure, some poems seem to “write themselves,” but more often, my best poems, are crafted over time, sometimes years, before I feel I have done all I can with a poem, and it is time to share it.

        I had a writing professor who said that the real downfall of a society is when it stops honoring its poets. I certainly don’t want to contribute to an already fallen world. ;-)
