Treasure Island

Louis Cecile

(London)

Eternal


From birth we are laid in a hearse,

Death unites life, unseen is our curse

Fallen dreams as above become below

Unaware of what waits to taint the soul


Mysteries forgotten, hypnotic awaken

I am taken cyclical, chaos bound

Lessons not learnt, never ending continuing round

Born yet I am born again


I reach divinity though cannot muster speech

I seek in present, a spiritual time

Yet inside I am many, but divided in two

One side won’t relent until it rules


The planet is a crossroad, existence a test

The end brings failure, so continues the test

Once taught I am lost, the demon awakens

Living life, wondering, who am I?


In silence it creeps, disturbing one’s sleep

Words not mine, behaviour untrue

By the power of light, be gone into the night

Hormones erupt, therefore easily corrupt


From knowledge, there is only survival

Words from the bible bide me time

Even if freed, this world hinders me

One so fallen, descends humanity


Looking back with age, naïve my path

Symbols of math, dictated the path

The number two, rendered me a fool

I am the demon’s tool


The truth of Eden, is we are the fallen

No memory, in death we remember

Then transcend again

Touching the left, restarts our breath


The test starts again

Exorcised demon, yet around are more seeds

Life to death is the purpose I seek

I am Adam eternally weak


A puzzle of confusion

Life of delusion

A wrong conclusion

New birth, new illusion

    I really enjoyed this one reminds me of some of my other poems. You know something taught by some Jewish mystics is that we evolve into this state of being and that we go through the cycles of life and death each time our evolved essence ascends and are lesser evolved state descends where it is purified by fire and returns to work off the karmic cycle until one completely ascends.

    Then that being works to balance love/light and some come back not bound by the karmic cycle and try to lead others by their ascended knowledge but the problem is sometimes when passing through the veil to return to this dimension they forget their mission and purpose and willfully place themselves back into the karmic cycle that they are no longer bound to. That is exactly how I felt and what I thought about while reading this very good poem! (Report) Reply

    Such a wonderful truth of life is visible here. Why no one has touched it yet? I am very fortunate to read and comment this as a first person here. Deeply philosohical and heart touching poem. I give 10+ for this great work (Report) Reply
