The Peace Of Familiar Surroundings

At Home At Home

You remember the good times as well as the bad,
And these memories influence choices made now.
You prefer the safety of familiar places
With your loved ones and all that your heart embraces.
Triumphs over your worst fears and troubles allow
Changes real to occur. You’re a noble comrade.

Courage, caring, commitment, and will-power are
Your most outstanding qualities. Protective of
Others in your surroundings, you are nurturing,
And the friendships you make are warm and enduring.
Everything that moves you is an effort of love.
In the ultimate search, no distance is too far.

Pessimistic you may seem. Loss never fits well,
But your determination to find what remains
Demonstrates dedication toward moving ahead
To the task in defiance of pain and bloodshed.
Letting go of the past will ensure you great gains.
You know you needn’t worry. In sureness you dwell.

Tragic are the conditions that change one’s life path
And the whole personality to the degree
That it’s turned inside out. ‘Funny,’ though you are teased,
You are good-natured enough not to be displeased.
Treacherous is the journey that will set you free
From your innermost nightmare and life’s aftermath.

You all want to feel better. That’s why we are here
In a room dark and empty and lacking in hope
That a new door will open. Things can become bright.
You are loved beyond knowing in God’s knowing light.
I commend you for finding some method to cope
With your sensitive natures accustomed to fear.

As your counselor, I am not here as your judge.
And I know if that were the case, you’d tune me out.
You’re so close to true knowing, yet movement is slow.
But the God force within you is willing to show
That our lives all have meaning. I know you have doubt.
To thine own self be true. I will not hold a grudge.

My sole job is to soothe you. If I saw you bleed
I would come to administer first aid to you.
I know your hopes are bleeding. Both wounds are the same.
We can all speak in open without guilt or shame.
I am glad you are here. You are long overdue
For a life that’s worth living with spirit that’s freed.
