We Move In Circles And In Cycles

By Jenn Grosso

As The Phoenix Falls {A Poem}
By Jenn Lui

You say you’ve been transformed
and that you’ve found your way
but how different do we really become.

One step forward sometimes ten steps back
and we find ourselves at the beginning again
Alchemy’s many disguises.

Walls are closing in while you react
Keep burning through the noose
Just keep burning through the noose.

Given the chance to rise above
to transmute fear and pain
trapped and stifled by ego’s demands

We move in circles and in cycles
we never really stay the same
yet never stray far away from our true nature.

Keep burning through the noose
to rise again and fall once more
to rise again.

Writing Down The Bones

Writing down the bones – Jenn Grosso, 365 Project Day 154

For those days that seem darker than dark, remember this too shall pass.
Always, there are new beginnings at every turn.

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain.” ~ Carl Jung

Death’s Song {A Poem}
By Jenn Grosso

In the bleak and the despair
Hold on tightly to yourself
Be comforted by Death’s Song.

These cycles they come and go
Every day in every minute
Another moment’s death.

Breathe and take it all in
The just beginnings
And all their many endings.

Nothing stays forever
Change is the only constant
Hold on tightly to yourself.

Cradle your darkness in your arms
Embrace the hidden opportunities
As the shadows reveal the light.

With every little death
New found joy in the beginning
Another moment is born.
