Soul Beginnings

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Within the soft moist folds of my soul’s womb,

each step I take a step of discovery,

to realise my beginning.

Not birth, not human folly stricken,

the soul that I am without the pain

of human suffering,

in purity of being,

where beginnings precede life.

In the darkness core,

where wingless angels are but a passing fiction,

I wander, silent, vulnerable,

at the edge of creation.

Who looks upon me in this womb,

this void of potential?

Am I but a fragment,

spewed out in some cosmic ejaculation?

Or perhaps I reside as a whole,

a mirror of my creator.

Within this womb I see only darkness,

a tranquil void filled with possibility,

and I, returning to a mother unknown,

see no light that I may claim,

that I may understand as my own.

My soul lives on,

without the knowledge of itself,

without origin,

just a sense of belonging,

a being.

Forever shall I walk the darkness of my soul’s womb,

seeking my beginning,

my father, my mother,

my creator.
