At fifteen thought life was fun an adventure
as she entered the church
behind her parents they were on holiday
her sister followed behind
from a young age heard voices in her head
knew they were of the dead!
For a while suppressed the sounds in her mind
but within the ancient building
had started again echoing from every angle
her parents had no idea
but had to confide with her younger sibling
knowing trouble it may bring!
Wanted to get out yet for the first time saw
what looked liked a woman
knew was not really there felt compelled
to approach and listen
such a soft voice speaking lonely and sad
for somebody to hear so glad!
Before she could approach her parents called
glancing back she had gone
for a moment heard nothing until a loud cry
as the ghost was by her side
that asked to be free from her perpetual hell
overwhelmed had a fainting spell!
It was a surprise to find herself laying down
sitting up her parents concerned
sat beside her grinning sister had to stand
then turned running to the exit
as even more voices shouted within her head
clearer she caught the thread!
Trapped souls were seeking her help to be free
away from the growing evil
let them go on into the internal peace and light
yet amongst the constant noise
knew there was a darkness growing all around
that was earth-bound!
Inwardly panicked began to drain her spirituality
as the woman once more
came speaking calmly now with an angelic glow
realised it was an angel here
to guide this young adult with her special role
to save each lost and lonely soul!
Yet still had a place on the earth with a loving family
to give her strength and support
in a harsh and ever-growing violent material society
where she found the love and joy
now she was able to see and understand true grace
so the future now could face!
