A course in miracles is taught,
visions of angelic imagery; Not.
These lessons we have fought.
Reality cannot be unreal,
for it's what we can't see
not hope, faith in what we feel.
Here within lies the grace,
inherited with love,
In ourselves the human race.
Vunerability is not a curse,
the sight of God in every face;
Forgiveness ev'er to rehearse.
At some point we'll get it right;
and we'll know we're a pro
when we disengage the fight;
O'er petty things of power,
for it is only you,
the coward.

Fear is the evil of human kind,
leaving you crucified;
Acceptance is yours to find.
You think you have the upper hand,
when in fact -
it is yourself, you have band.
We lock the chains
upon ourselves -
Blaming for our lack of gains.
Peace is our only place,
it is our only God given right,
it's this you must now face.
You, a child of the Higher,
you may deny His knowledge,
reject His love, or call Him a liar.
This changes nothing for who you are,
for He loves you no matter;
He will never be far.
Reach for Him, when in fear;
and for this...His
eternal love for you, my Dear.
