The Transition

Long before my feet touched the soil I am in now,
I knew exactly what kind of footprints I will be leaving on Earth
I am but an old soul traveling back in time and ready to face the future,
A pilgrim on a wondrous voyage beyond time and space.

Mystics are my old friends from another life time
As my soul is in an enigmatic transition to some where not from this world,
Centuries passed and time eloped with each passing day
But still this countenance is the same as it was in yesteryears.

In my world, time transcends in every nano second,
I can see through my crystal ball, the Genesis of it all
How young the Earth was and how innocent the inhabitants are
Vast lands of lush greeneries used to abound,
The promise of a beautiful tomorrow is always at hand.

Alas! The Phantom appeared and cast a dark spell
The once Divine Garden of Eden was enveloped by Fear and Sin
Mother Earth wept and with each tear drop, flood swept the lands.

The Paradise of Man withered as the ground dried up
No sign of life, I opted to let my soul collide with the stars,
And find another Home, until I found Him, the Light
Taught me how to discover my Higher Self and be a guide
To others who are in the same darkness as I was where before.

The Transition-
I am no longer just an ordinary inhabitant of the Earth but a Defender of it,
As my spirit soars Higher in the Heavens, with Angels playing sweet music on their Golden Harps
With melodious voices permeating and lingering long after the heavenly rhythm halts,
I am no longer who I used to be for I became a soul with an Eternal Purpose pursuing my Ultimate Destiny.

    The general reader will find this to be a very immersive and richly textured work. However,one is left wondering whether a few judicious line breaks and a semblance of verse structure might have enhanced the reader’s reading experience.
