A Most Sacred and Clarion Call for Fortitude: A Sonnet, by Manatita
A Dedication to My Friends; to the Vicissitudes of Life; to the Inevitable Ebb and Flow of the Cosmic Play.
On Adversity and Afflictions
Afflictions can seem to be unkind to us. We feel that the rich get away scot-free and the noble or worthy suffer.
None of us want things to go 'wrong.' We delight in God's goodness and shun adversity.
Amidst this all, The Master Artist, like a Divine Potter, moulds and shapes us all,
in the smouldering lava of Light and Darkness, to address and alleviate our pains. Alleluia!!
O Love’s Compassion, O Beloved, Come!
Ignite the fire of wisdom in my Soul,
Erasing a dark tunnel of countless sorrows.
O Bird of Light, O Spirit of Infinity’s Delight,
This loving parent on bended knees,
Recognises Your blessings,
Even in the depths of despair.
Even so, my Sweet One, Grace allowing,
Remove this furnace of anxiety within my mind;
For Love’s sake,
For the sake of Your ever-transcending Potter,
Free the afflicted from our shadows.
Take away our pangs of darkness;
Making it easier to endure, or receive supernal Bliss.
