There is a youthful spirit inside this ancient shell
Crying for release from the guardians watch
The iron has softened
And the water has quenched the thirst of this parched existence
Languor has wreastled itís way through muscle and sinew
Hunched a once strong and powerful being
To this form before you now
But the Spirit is as vital and powerful as ever
And will be reborn anew as surely
As the pheonix rises from the flame
Celebrate in the newness that awaits
For I shall rise upon fresh wings
To soar through the heavens
And to you I relinquish guardianship

Oh, how the little Cherokee loves this one !

'But the Spirit is as vital
and powerful as ever
And will be reborn anew as surely
As the pheonix rises from the flame'

Amen !

Kit,
Thank you, though the words are not coming as easily at the present time, when they do come they are very powerful.


Marge,
I'm so glad you enjoyed this...I was in the middle of a project and the words just started flowing......when it was finished and i reread it I just thought......wow........did I write that?

 Words are my medicine.
Read and live and love and heal!

Enotneicna~
I understand completely ...
the spirits come and fill the vessel.
Bumping this one so others may enjoy
it's beauty!
