I don’t look, I see

I don’t look, I see
I don’t hear, I listen
I don’t eat, I taste
I don’t touch, I feel
I don’t do, I experience
I don’t wonder, I understand
I don’t search, It is all inside

Hi there, I am a soul from the UK discovering what it means to be human, my soul purpose and what we are doing here on planet gaia. I’m a writer, the people’s journalist, philosopher, African djembe drummer, artist, tattooer, reader, gardener, plant lover, poet, musician, photographer, yogi, blogger, knowledge addict, researcher and student of the universe who is searching for truth and knowledge. I love to laugh and have deep, meaningful conversations. I am here to serve. ~Diosraw https://diosraw.com/

Flashes of the past

My name is Maria Teresa Pratico aka Ladysag77. I’m just a woman trying to walk this journey of life in truth. Being creative is my soul’s purpose and I achieve that through poetry, writing a blog, painting and dancing. My motto is “Triumphing over Trauma”. In 2011, I first became aware that I needed to reconnect with my soul. I started my journey of healing by 1st exploring my mental and emotional health, being diagnosed with CPTSD, which led to a more spiritual approach where I find myself today as a shamanic healer. There are many routes one can take that lead to the soul. No matter what, I never give up on myself. I can now say that I love myself and my spirit is finally free from cover. Unraveling the conditioning and programming continues to take introspection and will never cease. Life is beautiful once you decide to discover what your soul truly came here to do. Mine is to spread love and kindness. I host a blog about my journey at https://www.emotionalmusings.com and have written 3 books of poetry available on Amazon. “Emotional Musings” “My Soul’s Language” and “My Heart’s Song”  https://linktr.ee/Ladysag77

Fighting for Strenght

I roll with the punches life sets in motion.

It’s a game of playing distraction, usually.
Too much heat, and steely determination to overcome the struggle follows.
But I’m tired. I’m unsure. And I’m empty.

This game called life seems to weigh me down hard at all the wrong times.
Wish it could choose to pick the battles with me.
Stop just heaping one more thing on the pile.

Life, it’s not the best time to interfere yet again.

I feel like a resident in an understaffed hospital starting on hour 36 of my shift.
Numb from crisis and sleep-deprivation, handling one chaos after another like a zombie.
My reality is raging with every emotion on the spectrum.

Failing to process any now. I just can’t breathe.

It’s never-ending. I feel like giving up.

People don’t help.
They peek in and stare, then move on.
The expectation is you’ll be alright.
It’s none of their business.
They don’t have time.
They don’t care.

It’s on my shoulders, all the way.
I feel alone.
Decisions, emotions. It all runs together in a mashup of uncertainty.
How do I fix what I can’t control?

Do I try?
Give up?
Muster the minute bit of strength left and soldier-on?

No. Today I’m bogged down.
I’m latched tightly into the sorrow and overwhelming pressure.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll see the light at the end of the tunnel…

All Paths Lead Home

You are divinity
You are crystalinity
Cruising through infinity
Believe in sanguinity
We and the oceans have salinity
Microcosm of the mascrocosm
You are in the vicinity
A part and the whole of the holy trinity
Embrace your masculinity
Embrace your femininity
Leave behind the supinity
Transcend duality
Into wholeness
Into God
Into Allah
Into Brahma
Into Source
Into Consciousness
Into One
Into All
All paths lead home…

Applauding Adversity

Uttered with recalcitrant anger through gritted teeth; words forcefully arising out of my clenched mouth.

I’ve not let my life, situations, people, or anything end me. Yet.

I grant a thank you, of sorts, to the pain played out by substandard friends, broken relationships, betrayals, nature’s force, and every disturbing event determined to pierce me in my psyche.

It’s a necessary process, albeit grueling and inconvenient.

Enduring hardships becomes my opportunity to best myself.

I welcome the growth, but I do despise the adversity.

There’s no escape from struggles, or hurt and pain.

The victory gives me just enough strength for the next battle.

Delve Into

Delve into the esoteric
Delve into the occult
Delve into mysticism
Delve into the quantum
Delve into knowledge
Knowledge is power
Rise my friends, rise
Arm yourselves with knowledge

The Bad Will, The Good Will, and The Mad Will

The will to be bad
is as scary as it is compelling
and so much will it take
till you are something that is worth repelling

The will to be good
is as enlightening as it is pure
and so much will it cost
till you are something that you know is sure

The will to be mad
is as intoxicating as it is dreary
and so much shall it cost
till you know not the word that we call bleary.

The will to be anything
must come from within;
The will to be something
will come from nothing.

I Remember

I remember when I was five,
I used to love to be alive,
I really enjoyed catching bugs,
And found warmth in my mother’s hugs.

I remember when I was six,
My house got infested with ticks,
But we got rid of all of them,
And with them left all their mayhem.

I remember when I was seven,
Back then I still believed in heaven,
I loved to solve cool mysteries,
And do puzzles and climb tall trees,

I remember when I was eight,
That year my sister went away,
Sent to a mental hospital,
I don’t know why, I was little,

I remember when I was nine,
My sis came back and I was fine,
That was until my dad moved out,
And that’s what made my sadness sprout,

I remember when I was ten,
My mom came home with a boyfriend,
But they broke up because he lied,
I secretly hoped that he died,

Way back when I was eleven,
My mom got a boyfriend again,
But he was of another breed,
He was nice, and they got married,

I remember when I was twelve,
My emotions were hard to shelve,
Some kids liked to make fun of me,
I hid me tears, they didn’t see,

I remember when I was thirteen,
Turns out my sis has D.I.D.,
But I still love her all the same,
She told me all her alters’ names,

And here I am, almost fifteen,
Hiding myself behind a screen,
I love to read and write and sing,
So here I am, doing those things.

I started writing poetry in elementary school and I just got back into it last December. I mostly write for fun because I enjoy it, but sometimes I write to express how I’m feeling. If you want to read more of my poems here’s a link to my blog: https://interstellarpoetry.wordpress.com

My Dearest

My dearest!
When I look at you,
All I see
Is somewhere to rest my head,
Someone who I can rely on.
And share my innermost worries
Knowing that I’ll be relieved!

I remember when we met
Who would have thought it was meant to be
But, it was meant to be.
You are my one and only.
Your company is something I love
And, I would not trade it for another!

I think you are strong
One of the bravest I know.
Whenever you fall weak
I want to be there as your strength
You brighten up my day
And, I hope we last long, love
Me and you together!
