From the pits of hell I arise

giovanna

I took a journey on the dark side

and found myself in the pits of hell

with no where to hide

in the bottomless pit I fell

with no warning or sign

I stumbled into his web

lured by the feast offered

and the prize was fed

little did I know the price I’d pay

for being in this hell where i was led

Seaching for an escape

from this complicated maze

I’m wandering like a cat without a head

not knowing which way to be led

I cry out for help from the depths of my misery

with no compassionate soul to hear me

I pray for the gods to help me

they seemed to be sleeping

I am so lost

filled with terror

of never finding home again

for what was my sin

Awake Oh Gods above

lead me out of this abyss

to a land of milk…

The center of your universe

giovanna

 

You with your arrogant airs

you think you are special

that you know it all

they say Pride comes before the fall

you practiced well,your lines and verses

You are the center of your universe

all the world revolves around you

All your esoteric ideas and views

you tried to prove that you knew

like Copernicus of  days of olde

that you  have discovered

the center of the universe

but within you it seems to lie

you have seen the light

so you say

but that light is flickering

from all your hot air

and pretentious ways

in every thing you say

You are a king

a  supernatural being

with supernatural  powers

to make the world turn

and revolve around you

around and  around

’till all you hear is the sound

of your own voice saying

I am special

and in the mirror

the image you are portraying

you alone, your best…

A Great Day for an Epiphany.

 Great Day for an Epiphany
By Giovanna Sclafani (c.) Copyright 2013

Meditating on my life today,
I cried out to the spirits above,
And poured out my heart and soul
To the gods now I start to pray.

A revelation to me has occurred;
It came to me while wide awake,
Everything else was just a blur,
I purged my soul for my own sake.

All of my life flashed before me,
I asked forgiveness for all my mistakes.
And I had quite a few you better believe
But of everything in my life that I’ve seen;
The worst thing was to see, mom in her state,
It was just more than I could take.

I told mom, to just let go….
Let your spirit flow….
She is hanging on to life,
But is at the end of her rope.
I believe that her mere existence,
Is from her own…

A Great Day for an Epiphany.

 Great Day for an Epiphany

Meditating on my life today,
I cried out to the spirits above,
And poured out my heart and soul
To the gods now I start to pray.

A revelation to me has occurred;
It came to me while wide awake,
Everything else was just a blur,
I purged my soul for my own sake.

All of my life flashed before me,
I asked forgiveness for all my mistakes.
And I had quite a few you better believe
But of everything in my life that I’ve seen;
The worst thing was to see, mom in her state,
It was just more than I could take.

I told mom, to just let go….
Let your spirit flow….
She is hanging on to life,
But is at the end of her rope.
I believe that her mere existence,
Is from her own resistance.

I thought I was going mad
I felt so very sad,
Talking to myself out loud,
Crying to the gods,
Then I got mad.
But, I arose from my tear stained shroud.
And walked like a zombie,out of my sadness.

I sorted out all of the rubbish in my life,
And came to this simple conclusion,
That everything that I endured,
And every trial and tribulation,
Now, seems to me,just like an illusion.
which helped me, As I awake,
and walk forward into the light,
that guides me to all things for my sake.

For everything,there was a reason.
I listen now to the spirits when they call.
Don’t be your own worst enemy of treason.
The lesson is to love yourself most of all.
There is a time for our purpose, and then we’ll see
Just look within for the answers of what you can be.

Finally I realize so many truths
I heard the voice telling me so.
I have learned to love myself
And the inner voices that tell me;
That Now I am finally free!

Today was a great day for an Epiphany
And yes, it did occur,
If I were to tell it all; you may not believe,
The Past is over and is like a blur,
I let it go and set it free; it’s like a windswept leaf.
But it’s made me a better person for it all,
And I still listen to the spirits when they call.Image
