Reverberation of thoughts flow
within ones own self inflected abyss
Past action and deeds reflect back upon self.
The darkness is infinite and confiningly tight.

First a spark, then an ember, finally ablaze.
Transmutation begins, driven irresistibly inward
Formerly coveted, now obsolete
Slag of the former sloughs away

Expulsion begins, it burns away the remainder
Solidification of hard won lessons
indoctrination of new realities
Simultaneous joy and pain of rebirth

Dimly lit at first, the awakening begins
New vistas replace old limitations
Former Pitfalls become useful knowledge
Weakness circles back as strength

A warming glow initiates the revealing
Soft cool breeze sweetens the release
Ever so slowly begins new equilibrium of being
Newer, higher dimensional abilities await.

For a moment
just for a moment..
I look back and reflect
With a sigh, then a smile
I lift off

Right on point, that's exactly what I was striving to convey

True inward Alchemaic -is that even a word? - transformation.

Now, Quantum12

I've read much of what you've been posting and I have to say, it's been a while since I've seen contributions of your caliber.

Write, post, contribute...

Others are reading.

WTF? Where did you come up with this?

If I were afraid of death I wouldn't be after reading this.

Very comforting Slayer.

And thanks for sharing

Ah, awareness10, you're another one I've been following and reading from the shadows.

I haven't contributed to a writing contest in a few years. Yours and a few others recent writers contributions have spurred me on to be more active.

Thank you.

The description of the transformation is wonderful and very descriptive in an exciting way.

The movement from what was to what can and will be is what I took away.

Thanks for writing this.

This is exactly what I was inspired to portray, an inward confrontation of self. To take away something useful from ones own self created negative experiences

Wow. That was so freaking cool! I got chills a couple times and tears threatened to break loose. We are so changeable! We can become new.

I have been thinking about doing some writing and you have encouraged me. Thank you, friend.

Too bad it often takes something fairly traumatic to begin the self evaluation process.

Hey

A few of the others here inspired me, Glad to pass it forward

Thanks for sharing this

I was just thinking ... People often look to others to guide them towards the light of reason
Could be a priest or philospher or trusted friend ... we all act as guides for others at certain times
Often we are just being who we are and unaware of the impact of our words and deeds upon others

But In the end you can only be guided to listen to your own inner voice
Our inner voice is drowned out by the noise of the world

In ancient egyptian philosophy ... rebirth begins by honesty of the way one is ... it sets up what is called a "Civil War" within the seeker
The "War" being recognising the indoctrinations placed upon us from birth
Indoctrinations that shepherd us to conform to a "Social norm"

Our inner voice is our link to reality ... it can inform you of things that logically we have no way of knowing
It is up to us individually to put such ideas to the test
This way we gain our own mental verifiction or another avenue to explore

Faith and belief in something can not be proven to another
We all get our own proof tailored to our own uniqueness so to speak

Science can be used as an altar of truth and this is a good thing
If science proves an idea wrong we must accept it
But also a belief science can not disprove is a possibility

Just a few thoughts sparked by your post
