Doublethink Beliefs Premiere Contest Winner

This Life From a child taught Catholic creed, drilled, drilled into me by school nuns; those teachings will never recede, but, since those days I have lived tons. Spirituality, is life, I found this on my long journey; and when life stabs me with her knife, I seek the deep green and ferny. In the silence of a forest, I contemplate all chosen paths; in the peace of a birds chorus, yet, still I feel the sting of wraths. With a mindset of courage, strength, and a moral way of thinking;, and a soul with great depth and length, I just face this twisted life unblinking. My Next Life I can see a girl in shadows, she looks like me but is not me; I will find her in death's repose, and will awaken as this she. In afterlife, I am reborn, to a unique language spoken; odd rituals to welcome morn, I find symbols of God broken. My past life is gone and erased, I have no emotions at all; there is no sorrow to be faced, no friends, no lovers to enthrall. This new life a bottomless void, I wonder for this place called Earth; for here I am a humanoid, maybe, maybe on my rebirth. As Our Breath Flows, Here and Now So, having considered all this, I think I will embrace living; seeking serenity and bliss, total acceptance and giving. I am okay with the fast pace, and will be the best I can be; for the Lord will provide me grace, life a puzzle given to me. I will weep and mourn when I must, will hold to my heart memory; write words to release as stardust, and treasure each sweet reverie. And when death comes to claim this girl, let me repose deep in my grave; beneath blue sky where the clouds swirl, and lay roses like a red wave. ________________ December 8, 2021 Poetry/Quatrain/Doublethink Beliefs Copyright Protected, ID 12-1411-921-08 All Rights Reserved, 2021, Constance La France Written for the Premier contest, Doublethink Beliefs sponsor, Unseeking Seeker, Judged 12/31/2021 First Place

I am in awe of the talent you so graciously display. Your thoughts, so deep and soulful, inspire me. I long for the day my soul can bare in verse, the journey I have traveled. I must hone my skills to be ready on that day. God bless and keep you, Constance. Please continue to share with us, to say, what your heart has to say. Your friend, Bill P.S. Added to favorites. The music "Sound Of Silence" was a perfect match for "Doublethink Beliefs".

To the top-o-mine-faves Constance...truly memorable ink...love the obe journey, I believe, as many aboriginal humans do, spirit flight is authentic ( dreamscapes) a gift of vision from God, your flight is among the best literature I ever have gazed upon, Constance, and am changed by such revelation (missed sharing silence with you yest. on Vie's café) ...jimmy
