Angela DiGiovanni | Divine Soul

i caught a glimpse of my reflection
and saw a divine soul
and i needed this to know
for whom the bell tolls

it tolls for me
and it tolls for thee
to give and to receive
so that we are not washed out by the endless sea

death defies me
though i’ve wished to go home
life defies me
though i’ve wished its skills to hone

i am not allowed to escape my bounds
and fighting it is futile
tireless efforts lead me to see
the goddess light within me

a child of the creator
an heir of the kingdom
i am weaving my parts together
that have slowly come undone

the light you saw in me
allows a part of me to be free
my life’s work yet to be
unfurling ever so delicately

so i step towards the light of this life
rather than succumb to taking flight
just yet, i am not done
my mission has only barely begun
