True Testament



Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold. ~Leo Tolstoy



Any man can tell the story of what he has learned upon his way and those around him will listen, but it is the account shared by the one that has emerged from the grips of the agony of life's hardest obstacles, faced their demons eye to eye and risen from the depths of deep despair that have a voice that reaches more than just ears.  They speak through the creaking of steps taken on the hardest of floors.  It is that sound that our soul  hears, and then hearkening begins.  It is the echo of sound that reoccurs from this that proves to me the miracles that are born from adversity.  For it seems that it is the evidence of recovery that comes from true redemption that reveals the greatest miracles of all.

  4. a voice that reaches more than just ears

    I love that line. I think you're speaking of things that try men's very souls - slavery, warfare, natural disasters.

    But aren't more people broken by those things than redeemed?

    I also think about the smaller, more personal disasters - divorce, loss of a job, death of a loved one.

    Sometimes even these are to much to bear.

  7. Miracles are indeed born from adversity. I truly believe that, if we don't encounter and overcome adversity, that we cannot find TRUE happiness and contentment.

  8. This is so much truth.. and yes there are voices that are soon silent, it got me thinking of last week't Holocaust days, and the first hand accounts will soon cease to stir our hearts.

  9. I love how the tone of the poem doesn't allow the reader to do anything but focus on the words and their meaning... It grabs.

  12. The creaking of steps. The hardest of floors. There is growth and movement in the piece, in the poem.

  13. Very beautifully written and very very true! Those stories, those experiences we have suffered through, are the ones that bring us all closer together and let us grow because we all have hardships to endure.
