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…

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…

Leave it all behind (c.)2013 Giovanna Sclafani

181627_485426341530442_1743186754_nLeave it all behind
Lost in time
Lost in space
Lost in this place
Called the human race.It’s a dog eat dog world
With our ego’s all intact
And our heads in a swirl
And that’s a fact

Good versus Evil
Who will win the race?
And cross the finish line first,
Pushing and shoving money in their face
Greed is the driving thirst.

So you’ve won,
Before they’ve begun.
You’ve won the grand prize,
A stack of money green.
But love you’ve never seen.
So you run and hide.
In your island in the sun,
While the jealous one’s chide,
Your life has just begun.

Can your wealth bring love?
Can you really know this is true?
Leave it all behind when you die,
For the reapers are never shy
To steal it all away
Hurdled in corners dark
Waiting to get their part
While you lay in a cold dark tomb
They will spend your wealth
With sins done in stealth.

And your cold body now shivers,
To the naked bones where you lie,
On the day that you die
You’ll leave it all behind
Never mind to worry
Never you mind
You’ll have to leave it all behind.

Does anyone really care? RIP to DeShon 7-26-96—–2-4-13 A victim of a drive by shooting

You gotta walk son
but you better run
someone’s got a gun

Talk to me
Tell me why
The angel’s have to cry
it’s just not fair
Why did he have to die

Nothing’s fair
Does anyone really care?
The authorities
just want to solve a mystery
but a child lies dead
A terrible trajedy

There was no reason
A nightmare come true
His best friend now dead
Had his whole life still ahead
Just trying to get home from school
He didn’t break any golden rules

God tell me why?
His poor family cries
His best friend my son
His head is a mess
He was there
Does anyone really care?
Another child gone
but life still goes on

And I still wonder
Does anyone really care
As I listen to the thunder
The rain comes pouring down
But Life goes on and on
but for one boy it’s gone
from one stupid act
And that’s a fact

God tell us it’s not true
It’s too sad
it’s so bad
it’s so very bad
He won’t be back
He won’t be going to school
He won’t have life
It’s not fair
but does anyone really care?

My tears come flowing down
but no one can hear the sound
Of the heart breaking loud
and an angel is flying in the clouds
As the morning brings the new dawn
But now he’s gone
Goodbye Dear De Shon

In loving memory of De Shon a son, a brother, a best friend, now an Angel  the died to soon and was robbed of his life by one stupid act of violence.  He is sadly missed by his family and friends especially by my son…. his best friend.Image
