Poetry- A Tattooed Soul

I thought I had a tattered soul,

Ripped and scored,

frayed and torn,

But it was not to be.

For words brought life

And I came to know

With each thread of this..

my tattooed soul.

Where forgiveness lies

Forever printed

Where only God and I can see.

And with each word

Embedded there,

I fill with hope

In His tender care

And gently touch each

Healed seam.

For it is life giving

Just to know

That God himself

Tattooed my soul

With love for the redeemed.

When worldly strife

Haunts my life

And troubles come my way.

I look down

Inside myself

Where tattoos cover

worldly graves.

There is peace,

In every seam

That God alone

Drew in me.

To illustrate and elevate

The love poured in

Bold palette in hue.

Or softer shades of grey.

Each line


Importance each word holds.

A clever way to celebrate

The healing in a tattooed soul.
