The Paradox of Struggle. A Sonnet Dedication to Frank Atanacio, A Great Writer

Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.

I watch in awe, as the woman struggles,

Face contorted; beads of sweat pouring down her fragile frame.

Eyes shut painfully tight from forcing; flushed with pain.

“Push!” The midwife shouts, “Push!” I drift away …

I am reminded of the journey of the Soul.

Not unlike this woman’s.

As It struggles against darkness and ignorance,

Pleasure and pain, as the Inner Midwife calls: “Come! Come! “

Startled, I hear a cry as the new-born babe burst forth;

Its mothers heart, a paragon of Joy unparalleled.

So too my Soul, wrapped in the cocoon of a trillion rhapsodies,

Dances in the radiance of one thousand flares,

Unravelling its isolation, in rays of golden sunbeams,

Crying with the Delight, of a new awakening.
