Poem: Nothing Else Matters

Nothing Else Matters
By: Eric Gajewski
From the work, "Fortress of the Soul 

Here is my latest poem from the work Fortress of the Soul

 Press play and listen as you read the poem, Ave Maria

Nothing Else Matters
The Soul battles…
On the field of which the heart leads
Minds lost, streaming amidst this worlds lies that entangle
A War rages on…
Within all men below the surface unseen
What is it to Love and to whom is owed this Love?
Until self’s last breath would finally let out and scream
Your grace covers my affliction softly as the summer rain
Steaming in this meeting upon my broken pavement
Whence I hear the Wind exclaim
I am the Potter and Hand and you still are the clay
Your Face shines powerfully over my trial covering this pain
Healing, as my concern passes…
Your Day still greater than every night’s strain
As I fade from this world…
Your Place is lovely, this field in which I seek to escape
Never astray, I lay, finding everywhere I look, only Thee…
For Your grace is never late nor delayed
As Your Rays! O’ Sacred Heart melt away
My sins which no longer art to be remembered…
For Your Getaway is my island surrounded in melody as the seas play
Your Pay far exceeds man’s gold for those seeking "gain"
I am already fulfilled….
Your Gaze strikes down all fear and lights up the way
Following in the meadows as Your sheep…
Your May is my soul’s spring that invites me to forever stay
A Spiritual Bouquet, alone, I am found, in thy silence and solitude
For the soul still battles until the days latter
And upon these lips with words scattered I earnestly pray
Because nothing else no longer matters….

A great means to preserve continual peace and tranquillity of soul is to receive everything from the hands of God, both great and small, and in whatever way it comes.
--St. Dorotheus

Who except God can give you peace? Has the world ever been able to satisfy the heart?
--Saint Gerard Majella

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.”
--St. Francis de Sales

"While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart."
--Saint Francis of Assisi

"Be at peace with your own soul, then heaven and earth will be at peace with you."
--Saint Jerome

The servants of God...whether provoked by word or work, by keeping themselves tranquil and peaceful, evince a perfect nobleness of soul.”
--Saint Thomas Aquinas

”We must sometimes bear with little defects in others, as we have, against our will, to bear with natural defects in ourselves. If we wish to keep peace with our neighbor, we should never remind anyone of his natural defects.”
--Saint Philip Neri

”The more a person loves God, the more reason he has to hope in Him. This hope produces in the Saints an unutterable peace, which they preserve even in adversity, because as they love God, and know how beautiful He is to those who love Him, they place all their confidence and find all their repose in Him alone.”
--Saint Alphonsus Liguori

She  who is silent everywhere finds peace.
--St. Teresa Margaret

She who desires peace must see, suffer and be silent.
--St. Teresa Margaret

“Always receive with equal contentment from God’s hand either consolations or sufferings, peace or distress, health or illness. Ask nothing, refuse nothing, but always be ready to do and to suffer anything that comes from His Providence.”
--St. Teresa Margaret

Peace is the work of justice indirectly, in so far as justice removes the obstacles to peace; but it is the work of charity (love) directly, since charity, according to its very notion, causes peace.
--Thomas Aquinas

Let us not be justices of the peace, but angels of peace.
--St. Therese of Lisieux

Let us go forward in peace, our eyes upon heaven, the only one goal of our labors.
--St. Therese of Lisieux
