We live life in fear
Afraid of the dark, of death
Of what comes after
Why, when we’ve done this before
Many, many times over
We’re born and reborn
Working on our mortal souls
Until we become as one
…With the Divine
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
Hum Dom. I hear you and It’s well written but maybe there’s no before and no after. Hinc et nunc
That may be true Ellar, I can’t argue with you as none of us alive today can know for sure. Perhaps this is all there really is, but since the energy that we contain can neither be created nor destroyed, I like to believe that there is more in store for us beyond this incarnation. Just one man’s opinion. I guess I will find out in the not too distant future…well hopefully a few years off. 🙂
That is so beautiful and hopeful !
Thank you Cheryl-Lynn, I know that it gives me hope. 🙂
Beautifully said Dom – now… if we could just be reborn with better memories…
Thank you for sharing your enlightenment with us.
Thank you Michael. I actually do believe that some of what we experience in this life is linked to a prior ones. They may only be flashes, but they are glimpses of things done in our pasts. Even who we are in this life can be attributed to things we have learned or experienced in former incarnations. Of course these are just my opinion, but the older I get the more I feel that this is true.
Wow, thank you my friend.
Reblogged this on Narcissism. Grief. Recovery. Yiddishkeit. and commented:
A poem from Dom DiFrancesco
Thank you very much for the kind re-blog, I really do appreciate it. 🙂
It’s a great poem.
Thank you for writing this Dom. With my kinds of anxiety and stress, I need a reminder like this to chill out.
I’m glad you found some encouragement in this little piece. I hope that you can find relief from your anxiety and stress, I know what that is about as I live with people that suffer with this. Thank you my friend and peace to you.
It is fear of the dark and dreams for me. But those are personal fears.
And just as powerful as any, I’m sure that you are not alone my friend. Thanks OM.
