Poem: Break-Through

I began this poem in 1993 and finished it in 1997. It describes a transformation from disappointment and heartache to selfhood. I hope you enjoy. Would love to read your comments.

hope“BREAK-THROUGH”

Free now of all reveling
in unimportant things.
Fraught with expectations
full of broken dreams.

Moving right ahead now
with visions grandiose.
Closeup of a happy young lady enjoying rainSummoning the courage
to conquer all my ghosts.

Knowing in the fullness
of the days that are to come;
my obstacles will fall away
and my fears shall be undone.

father and son on the sea on sunsetMindful in this moment;
connected to my fate.
My sense of separate self
begins to dissipate.

Dissolving now completely
into the cosmic whole.
All enters my awareness
I reach my final goal.

sun in handsKnowing for the first time
who I truly am.
I am Universal Mind
and it is but a man.

 

 

 

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

    Hi Ray, what stood out to me was your use of the word ‘now’ punctuating the stages: it told of how the steps of our journey are always in the ‘now’, in our present moment, and we move and grow through them. Lovely poem. I would love to read your next verses in 5 years time. It would be really interesting to have a poem that follows you through life and the spiritual journey 🙂

      Thank you for the very kind comment, Angela. Yes, the use of the word now was very intentional. I have stopped writing poetry the past few years, but have recently taken it up again. Hope to be posting some new poems soon. In the meantime, I may post some more of my older ones.

      Have an awesome Friday!

      Ray
