Leaning Toward Infinite Spirituality

by A. Willow Bends

enlightened, I have drawn from
various organized religions
pulled from the best of their theories
such as acceptance and tolerance

calm contentment I work towards
seeking joy where darkness lies
where gray areas engulf others
where rapid breathing tends to run rampant

prayer candles, meditation
hugs, the touch of a warm hand
extensions provided to those who are in need
who bleed internally, isolated

my desire to be the type person
I would need in my own lowest lows
yes, that type person
to be a spiritual example

if one other be touched, grace ensues
to pass on kindness
"pay it forward" so they say
create an infinite spirit of giving

rising above shallowness
I lean toward a bright side
aware and consistently looking
for that broken soul and reach out
