Life Altering Change

Life altering change

Whether for better or worse,

Unavoidable.

At times they can bring on tears

Whilst at others there is joy.

 

Perhaps perfection

Does not come without its pain

Though perfect it is.

Everything’s as it should be

In the eyes of the Divine.

 

We are intertwined

With others on this journey,

Friends, kin and strangers

Struggling to understand.

Who would I be to judge them?

 

Should I not just love,

Embracing their inner light

And divine essence.

Honoring them as sacred

As I wish to be honored.

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Temper Your Rage

Temper your rage toward others dear one

It blinds you and fogs the mirror.

Incapable of seeing yourself in others, hate festers,

Turning gangrenous, unable to heal.

What angers you is that which you cannot admit;

You are Siamese–connected by a tiny spark,

The spark of the soul, beyond our human frailties.

Anger, hate, race, creed, color melt away

When viewed in the brightness of Divine light.

Unconditional love takes up residence

Welcoming the essence of all into her warmth.

With this, differences can no longer survive…

And for once we can live in total peace.

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

 

Between Birth And Death

Between birth and death

Lies the place of our struggle

Pain our companion

Yet through all this there is love

Lurking beyond our egos

Unconditional

Many strive to attain It

Though few ever do

Human temptation obstructs

Luring us with its promise

Left to our own wants

This incarnation is doomed

Destined to repeat

Maybe the next time around

We will find the purest love
