How I Know is What I Am

"I've seen blue skies,

through these tears in my eyes,

and I realize, I'm going home."

I sit in my silence

watching the world pass me by.

I am the watcher, the waiter,

the one who feels the heart of the world.

I am an Empath, a seeker of others

and hider amongst the noise.

What I feel,

I feel so deeply.

What I know,

I know with my heart.

Who I am,

is one alone among many.

How in a world so full

do I find so much emptiness?

How in a world so loud

do I walk in silence

between the spaces,

between people,

invisible in a crowd?

I am One who takes the pain,

I absorb the thought

and the feeling

of my brothers and sisters.

I take in their poisons

and change them to light.

I am lost in my direction

and clear in my destiny.

To be an Empath

is to know beyond words,

to feel with total awareness,

and to see with the heart.

The world rushes around me.

I hold strong to who I am.

Somewhere in my dreams

is a voice that says

"WAIT! Your time is soon."

I journey through the noise

and search for my own kind.

I look in the sea of faces

and listen for the cry of the Empath.

It is a pain that shoots through my heart.

A pain like joy and a joy like remembering.

I celebrate who I am. I fear what I am.

I know that in time we will all be reunited.

Like a Whale in the ocean I send out my echo,

my call to the others. And await an answer.....

are we out there? can we awaken within the dream?

am I the last of my kind?

I listen for the echo..."

....and yet the psychiatrist would say we were seeking to be unique. Trying to convince everyone else that we are something special to get attention. That we are just our inner child that never learned its place in the adult world. And as he sits there jotting his notes and pretending to be interested, our minds drift along.....pondering the inner workings of a man of the mind who has no idea what effect raping a soul with the force of conformity can have when caged up inside society's shatterproof sphere......void of emotion and color. We sit quietly and obediently, hoping that the cloud in his head clears before the rage builds again.....wondering if the world is really as lifeless as this monotone drone primping before us with crossed legs and an unmatched tie who attempts to convince us that the little red pill will make our eyes see as clearly as his can see....

Yet he fails to notice that his pen ran out of ink 10 minutes ago.

Not for nothing! :) I love finding new scriptures. They're new to me anyway :)

P.S. Please pray for God to send grace my way. They just now repo'd my car and now I have no way to work. It just never stops. So I think I'm going to sell everything I have left if I can pay the storage fees I'm behind and that way no one will have anything left to take. These entities know exactly what they're doing, don't they?

I do write quite a bit but actually this is not my poem.Only the last paragraph is my own. I do not remember where I got it but I do recall thinking, "Man....this sounds just like something I would write!" Like the words came out of my mind.

If you wanna read more stuff that's actually original you can check out my blog and myspace page

I will warn you though....some of the language can be harsh. I wrote most of it before I decided to follow the Lord and I have carried a LOT of anger and resentment for many, many years. It came out in not so nice words. I'm currently working with God on letting go of those emotions but when the people they are directed toward actually truly deserve the negativity, it's really hard to let it all go. I just keep praying....

Keep writing and copy write it!

I like the force, but watch the condescending tone towards the blind.

Love it - By Gods grace i just finished my first book of poetry myself.

Your writing is good enough to publish but you will only appeal to the artsy crowd, cause your poetry is harmonized and chaotic. Very similar to mine.

1. I am lost in my direction

Ecclesiastes 3:1
[ Everything Has Its Time ] To everything there is a season,A time for every purpose under heaven:

There is a purpose under heaven for YOU, in a time such as this. Primarily you have been called for:
1 Thessalonians 4:7 (New King James Version)
7 For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. AND
Ephesians 1:11 (The Message)

11-12It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.

2. and to see with the heart.

Proverbs 3:1
[ Guidance for the Young ] My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands;
Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
I know how you are using "heart" in your prose, but aligned everything to the word - because the heart is decieving above all things.

3.. I hold strong to who I am.

Romans 12:3 (New King James Version)
3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

YES! Do know who you are in Christ and stand strong on that, but always be willing to change by the renewing of your mind for Him.

4. I fear what I am. Why???

2 Timothy 1:7 (New King James Version)
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
and search for my own kind.

5. am I the last of my kind? Nope!

1 Kings 19:10-18 (New King James Version)
10 So he said, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; for the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.”
God answered him by saying:
18 Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.” You are not alone!
