alien illuminations


I’m finished seeking forgiveness
will instead focus on
the power of forgiving others
before it’s too late

there is this illumination
glowing within the soul
needing to burst out
and chart a brand new course

solitude is much different
than loneliness
whether lost at sea or
mapping brand new constellations

though familiar with connecting dots
these stars shine differently
leaving you strangely amazed
now that you are finally free

  1. The power of forgiveness is unparallel. Great post 👍👍

  2. Beautiful words, John, and such a vital message. This verse stood out for me:

    “Solitude is much different
    than loneliness
    whether lost at sea or
    mapping brand new constellations”

  3. Yes beautiful poem. 👌
    I too loved the solitude part most. Those lines spoke to me.

  4. Solitude and loneliness… on the surface the same, but utterly different
