Dear Me

I noticed Youtube was hosting an event for International Women's Day called, #DearMe. While I am not a woman and do not want to try to steal anyone's thunder, the moment I saw that a poem started to form in my mind. It is a rather personal poem but I think that it might inspire a few people both male and female alike.

The best of love

I have seen many wonderfully blissful relationships turn into nothing. I have seen what started out as perfectly happy couples digress into bitter enemies. When I grew old enough to actually start trying to find my own bride I was determined to not see that same kind of thing in my home. I was told by many people that sometimes you just do not have a choice in the matter. To them I will borrow the words of my Savior and say "Get thee behind me, Satan" (Matthew 16:23). I do not care if what they say is absolutely true. I do not care if all of my efforts combined will yield nothing but disappointment. I will still work with all I can to give my Angel Queen the best I can. This poem shares some of those feelings.

What stands in the way of you finding peace in life?

I very rarely publish a poem immediately. The only time I will is if the poem really strikes a chord with me or if it carries with it a feeling of desperately needing to be shared. This poem has both of those. Perhaps the feeling I have stems from the idea of what has happened with my relationship with my brother or perhaps the feeling is from just how powerful the poem is. At this point I really do not know. I generally need more time to process the full message that the poem is trying to convey before I really understand it. What I do know is that the poem contains a powerful message that if applied by everyone, would remove a lot of conflict in this world.

There are powerful and obvious messages that anyone who has the capability of reading could find within this poem, namely that of caring for people despite the differences and conflicts that may exist between you. What I do not know yet is what truths are carefully hidden within the emotional spectrum that this poem conveys. I know they are there and I know they are powerful. I just have not had time to figure it out fully. Regardless of whether you find those hidden truths or not, I do know this. There is a great peace that can be gained from the application of the more obvious part of the message found in this poem. I imagine that the deeper and hidden portions of this poem will likely help you to gain a greater drive to find this kind of strength in your life, but as I said right now I do not know.

The Real You

Sometimes simple joys are the most powerful.

I really do not know if this better describes my feelings or if it more properly catches my Angel Queen's feelings. Though I wrote it, and because of that I can relate to it, but the more I read it the more I see that this better captures my wife's feelings. I have actually been noticing that more and more in many things.
In so many ways even my Angel Queen will say that I will often know her better than she knows herself. I think the opposite is true as well, but I do not know that one for sure yet. I do know this, if it is not true now then it will be true later. She will end up knowing me better than I know myself. What I find most interesting is that the simple emotional truths hidden within this poem can likely help most people find the same dynamic growing within their lives.
