The Progress of the Soul

The Progress of the Soul


A sceptical mind was all I could find

as I peered inside at my own desolation


All that I’d found was the sound of my thinking

my good thoughts retreating


And all the stress

Of all my feeling


Then turning the pages of a book

I read words that hit me to the core


Things I’d never known before

and I wondered if this would do instead


Since that time

Many a bitter storm I’ve felt


Able to blow me back

To my first deceptions


Had it not been for that love known

Grasped at and then believed


And I made no recantation

Joyful, faithful, trustful now I’ve grown.
