MYSTIC POEMS: “For a New Beginning”


“For a New Beginning”


In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

    1. I can only imagine how devastating and difficult it must have been…
      The life changing seed of love, hope, and faith reaches our hearts
      and transform us in those crucial moments when we can no longer see the light… “For your soul senses the world that awaits you”. I am grateful that God’s light brought you so much comfort and a new beginning 🙂 ❤
      Much love back and a big hug, Amira ❤
