Allow Grace - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

Be not deceived


Be relieved

Of the fog

That has covered your eyes


Dimmed your view

Of the world around you


With clear


Of Light

Open yourself

And allow yourself

To be loved by others

Allow Grace

To clear a pathway

Into your heart

Seek not

The consul of others


Seek only that which

Is best within yourself


Share it with others


Your time has come

To forgive


To be forgiven


You can be

And know

That today will begin

A new


A holy path

That will take you


Full Circle

Back to your Self


Back to the

Tis poem was written on August 21, 2013 and first published on my blog today.  Self is my way of saying, Soul.  I see no divison at least for moments of inspiration when we fuse as one.

I don't know what this was...! The only thing I know is that it stroke me... and it was like... even if I first thought what I needed to do when I wrote this... I finished reading this, and I started to cry, and it was something about the words... "allow grace, allow yourself to be loved by others, to forgive, and to be forgiven..." and it was like suddenly - I just knew: "I need to tell a special person what I feel... it might end up wrong, it doesn't matter, the only right thing is to tell what I feel..."

Even if at first glance - I felt afraid to do that... But just by taking the decision in my mind to do that - I was free... I don't know what, but I just know I feel so good!

Thank you for a wonderful poem
