Awaken is a poem written by Jemica M. Colasito and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Master of my Fate, Captain of my Soul for January
Don’t be deceived by mere illusions’ guise,
Projected visions that may blind your eyes.
They hold no substance, fleeting and unreal,
For reality’s awakening, a truth to reveal.
The truths of life may challenge what you know,
But closing your mind won’t help you grow.
Embrace the unknown, let curiosity ignite,
Expand your knowledge, like stars shining bright.
Let your heart and spirit collide and align,
Preparing you for a life that is divine.
Discover the joys that lie beyond the veil,
Uncover the happiness that will never fail.
Take my hand, open your eyes wide,
Marvel at the beauty that’s found inside.
Live each moment fully, without fear or strife,
Listen to your heart, it will guide your life.
You are unique, precious, and rare indeed,
Respect your body, its strength and its need.
Your soul is the essence that makes you shine,
Cherish it deeply, for it’s truly divine.
Together, let’s venture into the great unknown,
Embrace life’s journey, let our spirits be sown.
Celebrate the world with joy and delight,
For in this shared existence, we find our true light.
