Voyage of the Soul (in 2 parts)
It takes a while to come back to earth
when you've been bravely flying
into the skies of your soul,
when you've been fearlessly voyaging into the depths of your mind.
Oh but fear not little one!
Your heart is your compass,
it contains the wisdom of millennia,
it beats just for you
to the rhythm of your uncharted destiny--
stay in your bravery,
abide in your tenacity,
I Am with you every step of the way,
even though it may seem you are alone like a single night star,
we are shining behind the mist--
multitudes & multitudes
opening the way.
2. The Unfolding
Moving from darkness to light
is a hero's journey into the unknown,
it is not for the faint of heart,
but even the faint find their strength.
It seems no one is spared this path
into the depths of hell & the heights of heaven,
demons & angels each sing their own melodies,
the key, it appears, is to harmonize the dark & the light
until all becomes illuminated,
one spiral descent & ascent
into suffering, into joy,
& at the end of the road,
at the top of the mountain,
in the deepest forest cave,
there is bliss,
there is peace--
this, this, my beloveds,
is the unfolding of a life.

Thanks guys for the likes & Stephen G for the comment. So glad you enjoyed the poem! Poetry is my (almost) daily therapy (crazy world, crazy me, lol) & it is so nice to be able to share my poems & to read others' poems. Thanks to all the folks who organize & participate in WOL. A wonderful website.
