Conquering and Becoming
By Henrietta Asher Handy

Copyright (c) 2004 by Henrietta Asher Handy

Dark passions lie within this Soul of mine
No matter how hard I seek to do good I do evil
Hurting those I would most treasure and protect
Protect that which I should despise
I cannot change this Soul within me
Cannot make it white, gray, black or purple
It is so far beyond my control
But my desire is for good though oft’ it falls short
So, upon me I cannot depend for changes good or bad
I must kneel and surrender
Let the dark passions scream and cry and burn
Let them turn to white-gray ashes
So that from their depths love can grow
Conquering who I was
In order I may become who I am.
