. . .

Each life long ago lived creeps up on me.
The past is gone so they say, but there it is.
When I close my eyes, never is it darkness
but bits and pieces, only fragments of what I was then.

A Penguin's conversation, the calls of the tamarins.
A flight never forgotten on wings of my very own.
A long, low roar from the depths of my belly.
A den well hidden and dry to raise the next generation.

But the visions persist, looking down the barrell of a gun,
the tension and the stress of fighting other men,
the politics, the brutality, claiming I fight for freedom.
What have I learned? What lessons from the battle?

And death steals the body away again.
In a state of hate I am forced into the ether
with the angel at my side, into it's eyes
I see my true reflection as it sends me back.

I have not learned but Dear God how can that be?
How is it that I know that I missed the point again?
And in this again, another body, another life, another set of conditions.
What have I really retained? Just memories or is there wisdom?

I do not know right now, my head bows and I say "I do not know".
And the angel comes but without death, sometimes without death
And my true reflection is in there again, in it's eyes.
And I cry for the beauty of my soul.

Rich in beauty and wisdom, mirrored in eternal time, with your reflections you have travelled deep into your soul, thank you for a glimpse, it's beautiful, many compliments and blessings! Jasmin Horst

How beautiful and true are your expressions! For your memories have manifested into the feelings of emotions long ago. They do then contrive to be the wisdom of now and then tomorrow. All we have to do is listen to their echoing sirens. Very very well written and heart felt words of a beautiful soul. Thank you for sharing.

Perhaps you retain more than you think, I do believe in reincarnation and I think we sometimes even get short peaks into our other lifes. Great write Zuesa
