Living's Curse

Many times through many lives I fought for freedom of the mind
As burdens made by living’s curse ensured restraint of freewill’s kind.
Then something found in search beyond the rampart walls of prison’s kind
Revoked the parapets unscaled to free the curse of limit’s mind.

Then arose from dungeon’s depth that once was bound by living’s curse
Free spirit with its wings unfurled where thoughts could soar in freedom’s verse.
Though many lifetimes I had walked denied the ways of freedom’s verse
Now unconfined by mind’s restraints I’m now released from living’s curse.

Walking now new paths illumed, as with new sight I am consumed.

Ivor G Davies

    if the purpose of such visions was to teach you something, if, collectively, the held a lesson for you, what would that lesson be, what is it you are suppose to learn? Learn it, and new lessons will come.
