Find the courage to move on !!!

A Chameleon will fit in

with any background,

with any colour

bright or dark

with any feelings

without a thought.

Thoughts will blend

so amazingly

easily

maybe not right

but also not wrong.

True thoughts not recognised

so trivial so torn

A spirit will

lie low

but

will

bravely

even if short lived;

sometimes

swell

to show it’s head;

to crave from

deep within

to say

so much;

a bubbling

over

thought;

but a strength from within

lays dormant

waiting

just waiting

for that very special day

when the world

will witness

the true being

from deep within

that Chameleon.

Not ready today

but one day will emerge

maybe one day soon.

Many will capture that Chameleon

and try to imprison

in pastures so new

so out of his comfort zone.

In order to force

to compel

to wrench

to pull

that inner being

away from it’s

hiding place

deep inside

the Chameleon.

But this Chameleon

will, never allow

this intrusion

so rude

so cruel

so unwarranted

so uninvited.

The Chameleon

once more

will dart back

into the safety

of its comfort zone.

Words of others

disregarded

shrugged away

and kept deep within

where

thoughts

and

feelings

cannot reach

cannot force

another awakening

not asked for;

an intrusion

not allowed.

Private property: Trespassers will be prosecuted!!!

Very apt words indeed.

Then almost magically

that spirit from

so very deep

within the Chameleon

sees;

feels

senses

that he needs to break out

from hiding!!

He

wants to

has to

will do.

The world by now

forgotten

their mission

of

saving

a soul so torn so hurt;

but still so very strong.

A strength never to die;

A spirit so awesome

awakens; and is reborn.

Slowly

almost in

clockwork fashion

once more

the world

takes an interest

Do it this way!!!

Do it that way !!!

Do it his way!!

Do it her way !!

Oh no

I will do it

My Way !!

Many self -interested

wanting that empty glory of repeating

I helped !!!

I shared !!!

I want the glory!!!!

I need the glory!!!

Self absorbed

self needed

selfish

and totally shallow

beings;

their need never

met from

within this

Chameleon.

Move on hollow beings;

move away

from this spirit;

with a

new

and

unconquerable

strength.

All unwanted bystanders

powerfully pushed to one side

not needed

not wanted

at this time of great

transformation

from deep

inside this

Chameleon

which was now

losing his power

his ability to blend

losing his strength

and the spirit from within

swells to mountains high

swells higher than the heavens

flowing so so high

over the earth.

The Chameleon shell

thrown away

discarded

in new

and

determined

steps.

Initially slowly

but surely

the spirit

at its own pace

in its own way

found it’s way to the fore;

forwards and upwards

upwards and forwards

invisible ties

take a desperate

final effort

to drag

this

new

and

fresh and beautiful

spirit

right back into the depth

of the

Chameleon

once more.

But the spirit

now reborn

and

the invisible

but once

so strong ties

snapped in eternal defeat.

A halo surrounded

this new spirit

and he bravely

stepped out

into

his brand

new world.

A victor

so proud

so alive

and so very

ME!!!

    And that free spirit is the ‘Holy Spirit!’ Only he can change us, on the inside. What a shame, we still have our overpowering, self-will to deal with, every single day!
