Salvation Lies Within ~ Love, Sex And Poetry

Salvation Lies Within ~ Love, Sex And Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

The choice
Lies
In your fragile hands
Shaking
From the weight
Of consequence
Your actions
Brought
Into your life
Your future
Hangs
In the balance
You are still
Loved and adored
Will you
RISE UP
Will you
RISE
The choice
Lies
In your pounding heart
As the web
Of lies
You spun
For years
Finally comes
Unspun
Revealing
The truth
For us all to see
You are still
Loved and adored
You are loved
But the question remains
Will you
RISE UP
Will you
RISE
The choice
Lies
In your soul
Lying bare
And broken
On God’s alter
Asking for redemption
Without surrendering
Trying to manipulate
God
The same way
You manipulated
The rest of us
You are still
Loved and adored
You are loved
I challenge
Your addiction
I stand
Face to face
With your demon
Of prescriptions
I RISE UP
I RISE
For you
Out of love
The choice
Lies within you
Will you
RISE UP
Will you
RISE
Will you
Choose the
Salvation
That lies within
Will you
RISE UP
Will you
RISE

Life Is Best When Lived Passionately 

NOTE
Dear God, This is a very special prayer that I write with tears running down my cheek. Please allow someone I love to accept the help that is being offered to her. Her entire family, more than 20 people who love her, are working a plan to save her. But, we know, she has to choose to save herself and accept our help. I should know by tomorrow morning if she accepted and if she will let us help her get help. It’s all on the line. Her life is on the line.

About Love, Sex And Poetry

In my poems and essays I explorer all facets of love including romantic love, love of self, love of life, love of family and love of writing. My posts also explore sensuality and sexuality. Some of my writings are considered Erotica and written out of love. I like to pair all of my poetry on my site with Artwork. Life is best when lived passionately.
