Of What is My Bondage Made: Poetry by Diane Maietta

There are so many elements of this world that divert and allow us to become captive of and chained to negativity.  Most of us do not exercise the mind’s free will to consciously choose more positive actions evolving the Self to higher ground. 

Don’t let yourself become numb in the linear of mundane daily matters, with your heart’s dream of understanding the full depth of your Soul’s birthright shackled, silenced and locked away for another day.  

Life is NOW!  Let your Life move to the tempo of your Soul’s song.

Of What is My Bondage Made 

There are no shackles to chime 

Some malicious discordance

With my name as its crown;

No ropes to bind my hands

From reaching my heart’s

Immaculate joy;

Nor strings to scramble my will

Along the marionette’s 

Haunting extinction.

 

Deep within the Spirits of my ear:

In the symphonic silence

Of my higher Self,

God sees the soul He gave to me—

My mirror flame; my lover; my friend.

 

The gracious treasures of Infinite Love

Absolve me in streets of eternal gold.

The winds of Nirvana’s esprit de corps

Surround me through and through,

My tears dance in ecstatic insight

Of Timeless Liberty.

 

And I ask of myself as I dream of this wonder,

Of what is my bondage made? 

 

First Rights.
