The Mystic's Dilemma

Even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.

I tried to write of sadness

But only joy could I then find

I tried to tell of angry thoughts

But happiness filled my mind

By Peter Conlan on Unsplash


I wished to list all my regrets

But my memory was poor

I tried but could only write of peace

Instead of chronicling war


I sought to bring the idea of worry

But instead, hope filled my cart

I wished to write of hate and fear

But only love was in my heart

By Tyler Nix on Unsplash


I tried to think thoughts both sick and ill

But in health, my beliefs do lay

I tried to dream of my impoverished past

But only abundance had its say


I tried to speak of the fires of Hell

But that would be but lies

I purposed to imagine storms and clouds

But could only picture blue skies

I tried to tell of things kept in

Of emotions kept repressed

I tried so hard but in the end

Only beauty did I express


The dilemma of the mystic’s soul

With wisdom to impart

There is no room for thoughts of fear

When love would fill your heart
