(1) Ode To Mother Teresa

Lift the veil of darkness
Let the light come through
Cry your crocodile tears
Distil beads of dew
Sing songs of wild cacophony
Listen to the lion roar
Fly your flimsy paper jets
Watch the eagle soar
Shroud your puny shoulders
With wings of an albatross
Wing the vast empyrean
On monumental waves
Liberate your ailing soul
From labyrinths of woe

An original and dramatically penned piece inspired by an enigmatic human being. Your poem is full of paradoxes - the darkness within the light, the power within the powerless, the frightened within the courageous. Well crafted poem. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
A fascinating impression of Mother Teresa, We all have our moments of light and darkness, but I believe she was a great human being. Eloquent write, as always. Warm regards, Sandra
