I have always been fascinated with the visible and invisible worlds…
I somehow felt that there had to be some type of eventual merging between the two realms. My dreams often depict me in flight embracing a dark universe filled with bright stars, an array of colorful cosmic visions.
This poem symbolizes my spiritual awakening, my inner transformation and journey leading me to a hidden truth. The Sun depicts the light outside of me that shines upon me, guiding and protecting me along the way. I describe a darker path that also engulfs my life, by introducing the lines about angels fallings, bound and unknowing, where I attempt to reveal the other part of my unseen truth.
My poem takes the reader on a spiritual quest in seeking a divine source in the invisible and visible world. Only to discover her lifelong belief may have been somewhat misconstrued. Having to acknowledge the realization that the Divinity she seeks was accessible to her all along! Accessible to all! And it was this revelation that began my awakening.
Awaken To The Sun
Awaken to the Sun
it is the light outside of myself
black dust like ashes arises,
in this world
I am bound,
like angels falling,
soulless and unknowing
Bathed in delusions
intoxicated with sin....
into this matrix that never ends.
Out of darkness beyond the stars
my soul awakens
unto the Sun.
which nourishes, protects
and guides me
to the other side.
on this journey
I am traveling,
in and out
entering new dimensions,
so deep inside
the eternal covenant of my mind.
Sonja Marie Phillips- Hollie: I was born in the Windy City of Chicago but now reside in Texas. I have a degree in Spanish and have worked as a bilingual translator, supervisor and Data Analyst for Student Life Programs on campus. One of my life passions has been acting as a counselor and mentor for at risk high school students. I enjoy reading and writing poetry, dancing and hope to one day write my first novel. I am a blend of many different ethnicities, and embrace them all! I also have a fascination with Egypt: a theme that often appears in my poems. I'm a mother of three beautiful daughters. My hope is that my poetry touches someone’s heart, comforts the lonely, or redeems a lost soul.
