Eugi’s Photo Prompt:

As she reflects on her life’s journey

she stands in awe of who she has become

from what she once was – emptiness, death…

*

In her reflections into her soul

she sees a Dawning of Light

where once there was only darkness

a precious, gentle and quiet spirit

where there once was angry, violent rage…

*

She is returning to her True self of

whom she was always meant to be

always desired and strived to be

before her innocence was taken and

the oppression she suffered devoured her

leaving her soul dying within her…

*

Now in her Dawning of Light

she has risen from the ashes

to devour the oppression that

once devoured her becoming

the empowerment to leave behind 

the darkness of an empty death

to a Woman graced in the wholeness of Love

Fearfully And Wonderfully Made

Broken pieces

each a story

of its own

shaped by its 

survival

lovingly sculpted

by the 

Healing Hand

into a unique

majestic beauty

only seen by the

eyes of the soul

for true, eternal

Beauty

is found only in

the broken, the flawed,

in the ugly 

that the human eye

cannot capture!

Resigned Sojourn

Written In Response To:

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #108 – PROMPT: You can choose any one line out of the seven given here, and use it as the first line for your piece.  Here are the seven lines to choose from:

“For I have known them all already, known them all:

Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons;

I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.”

Source: “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T.S. Eliot

“Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave

Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind;

Quietly they go, the intelligent, the witty, the brave.

I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.”

Source:“Dirge Without Music” by Edna St. Vincent Millay:

For I have already known them all

through the risings and the falls

evenings, mornings, afternoons

life’s tragic and comedic cartoons

drowning darkness of the grave

bold courage it takes to be brave

the ugly, the callous, and unrefined

the beautiful, the tender, and kind

a plan for me that was pre-designed

and to this plan…I am finally resigned.
