There Lives Inside


There lives inside

A space created by pain

Cultivated by love

Sustained by perseverance

There lives inside

A will so strong

That nothing can stop it

Nothing can make it weak

There lives inside

A voice that has waited to speak

To let me know the things

I’ve been craving my whole life

And I hear it

And I hold it

And I honor it


I offer it the love

That lives inside

From one


The integrated space

Where Faith

Meets Grace

And spreads

There lives inside

  1. What a gorgeous piece Lorrie! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3 Filled with comfort, Self-Love, empowerment and faith ๐Ÿ™‚ <3 It made me smile ๐Ÿ™‚ I am sending you lots and lots of Love! <3 <3 <3

    1. Thank you my dear Trini! Yes…it is full of all of those things. I am happy it made you smile…I would always wish for you…dear sweet Angel…to have a smile on your face! I hope it warmed up for you! <3

      1. ๐Ÿ™‚ It is still super cold!! Today I used a blowdryer, you know that you use to dry your hair, to warm up my toes! hihihihihii ๐Ÿ™‚ You and your mother are in my paryers Lorrie, I hope you are doing okay and that you are also taking good care of yourself ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

        1. You are very perceptive dear Trini! When I finally stopped “doing” everything I needed to do….I got the flu! I am on day 4…and today is the first day I felt I could post. I wanted to on the other days, but I just couldn’t! I know that my immune system is/was compromised. It is really terrible when you have a disease that presents with flu-like symptoms AND you get the “flu” on top of it!! But I am taking good care of myself. I will be good as new soon! Thank you dear one! <3

  2. Beautiful Lorrie. This is filled with so much goodness, hope, empowerment and spaciousness. It reminds me of a talk I recently listened to by Pema Chodron about spaciousness, making room inside by embracing our hurts and dislikes while giving away our love and likes. blessings my friend ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Wow, Brad! Your response is like a poem itself! And I really like the idea of making room inside…I think sometimes when we go through hard times it feels like it is all cluttered…all taken up. But that is never true. What blossoms inside is never ending….and can never be FULL…as long as we give it away we always make room for more! Thank you dear friend. I was just at your site probably at the same time you were here! <3

  3. Oh my, Lorrie, I don’t often read things that give me chill bumps but this did! This is simply stunningly amazing and filled with so much sanctity. You were definitely a messenger from the voice of the Holy Spirit with this one! I will be reblogging this today. You go girl!!!! Love and hugs, Natalie <3 <3 <3

  4. Touching, beautiful and resonating with truth…this came from that place inside, for sure! Thanks so much for sharing.. “Where faith meets Grace”, love that. Be well! I hope you feel better soon<3

    1. Thank you Cynthia! I’m so happy these words resonated with you ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s funny…I added those last few lines while I was typing the post…I don’t normally edit my poems at all. What you see is what moved through my pen…but those words had to come out ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the well wishes…I will be up and running soon! <3

  5. This is beautiful, Lorrie. I love each and every line you wrote…. they speak to me. ‘Voices’ once again, how we hear them from our heart!! Thank you, Lorrie! So lovely.

  6. Such a beautiful piece this is and truly I felt each word. Indeed, there lives inside so many rich and powerful blessings just waiting to be awakened. This spoke to my very soul and I am thankful for having the chance to read it here! Many blessing to you my sweet friend and a world full of all that lives in side of you! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Peace ~Matthew

  7. The inside we all share, where we all meet… I went there once and now I’m here, reading this… Such power… Such tenderness… So many knowings without forgetting… So many possibilities without failure… So many beings without over-crowding… That part, I don’t get… It’s really not fair to the rest of reality that we’re walking indomitabilities… Smiling, holy cheaters… ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Ah! What a super comment to read first thing this morning, Michael ๐Ÿ™‚ This place is miraculous and I want to stay here! I know that I spend more and more time there as my consciousness continues to develop. I worry that I will be greedy in my desire to attain full fledged “membership.” But for now, I will be satisfied with all I learn that raises me higher in the evolution of my soul!

      Your words are a poem in itself…that is one of the things I truly love about you! Your words are like a song…they impart such knowledge and beauty and I can always hear the melody…and the harmony!! <3

    1. Hi my dear friend Kirt! Thank you so much for thinking of me with this beautiful award! I am truly honored. I hope you understand that I have decided to take a break from award posts. But I thank you again, for thinking of me and my blog for this honor. I am very happy that you were bestowed with this award! <3

        1. Thank you my dear friend! I will try ๐Ÿ™‚ And I send you much love and peace! I will traveling to Tucson soon…so I will be in your neck of the woods! I get excited to visit the desert and mountains….look for inspiration there! <3

      1. Well, you know.. as always.. super and magical and confusing and difficult all at the same time.. It’s okay… always it’s okay. <3 I was happy to see you at my blog.. and I realized it had been too long since I visited. I am letting go a lot more.. who knew there could be more. <3 But it feels really nice. Whatever shows up is ok. Sometimes there are nice surprises.. like you. ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. I love your response in so many ways, Laurie! Isn’t it amazing what we find when we can truly let go! I think it is a life’s work…sometimes I think I will “get there” and I do…for a bit. But it is a constant give and take….and being able to stay in the present moment is the key. Being able to connect to that source of all things is the other. I wish you much beauty and peace. It was really nice to see you too! <3

    1. Thank you! Thank you for your wonderful comment…and for making me read my own words again…for the support from my own soul is much needed right now. Much love and many blessings to you!
