When I wrote this poem in September because of the negative aspects in it I was not going to include it on this site. However, after positive comments from others received on my blog of poems on WordPress, and from another blog where my poems are shared, I decided to use it here.
On my other blog with each poem I also write something about it, this was part of the entry for this poem…
After praying for guidance and visualizing the completed poem ‘out there’ uplifting people around the world, I got ready to write… I read the quote again and thought of coincidences, but nothing came to my mind, which is very unusual for me. I read the quote again and thought, ‘What am I going to write?!!!’ And the questions of the first four verses flowed quickly. As I was writing them I was thinking this is way too negative! – I try not to have anything negative in my poems unless it is really needed to tell the story or help explain a concept. But, I knew that as there were questions, I would go on to answer them.
The answer verses followed easily but then I was writing about the ‘dark side’ in more detail than I would like. I finished the poem and didn’t even bother to print it out, I just let it go, thinking it was all too negative. Usually when I am not happy with a poem I continue straight on to write another with the same quote, I was thinking this would be so easy to do with this one, as I already knew I could write about coincidences. However, nothing flowed, so I gave up.
The following day I had another attempt to write a poem with the same quote, but still nothing! It was interesting that I just couldn’t seem to get the words for a quote that I knew I could write so much about! So, I re-read the first one and gave it some thought…
If I truly believe – and I do – that ‘Nothing Is By Chance‘ – then I was supposed to write this poem and not one about coincidences. And, if I truly believe in what I wrote – and I do – then I should share it… negativity and all!
Nothing Is By Chance
Quote Title: Eileen Caddy
Poem: Trina Graves
Why do the ‘bad’ things happen
Causing shedding of many tears?
Atrocities, neglect, futile wars
Still going on throughout the years
Why are innocent little babies born
With problems right at the very start?
Or ‘lost’ even before the first breath
Breaking open their parents heart
Why do some people have to struggle
Through a life of torment and dread?
For them nothing ever seems to go right
Poverty and debt looms over many a head
Why do fatal diseases like cancer
Exponentially continue to grow?
While cures are available, but not used
Unless you’re alternately ‘in the know’
Karma is one of the reasons
For challenges we all must face
But, we make the choice before birth
To learn with experience and good grace
For our Souls are on an eternal journey
To experience and grow through life
Reincarnating in a myriad of roles
We need it all, including the strife
The Law Of Attraction is also paramount
An all-encompassing force, a powerful magnet
Negativity or positivity breeds and grows
Claiming all thoughts and beliefs that fit
We are powerful Spiritual Beings
Radiating our energy all of the time
Absorbing others emotional rays
Can lead us to love or even to crime
Together we can unite our strength
Experiments have proved in the past
Groups of people meditating on peace
Plummets crime, a true love blast!
As a species we are Awakening
To the extent of our true power
At long last The Light is toppling
The Dark’s encompassing prison tower
The Illuminate-elite have lost the war
They have raged through countless years
Controlling and manipulating us all
By producing lies and illusions of fears
Their grip on our lives has been brutal
Overshadowing from the cradle to the grave
Now knowing we are pure Souls of Light
We no longer submit to be their slave
The rocky days ahead may be tough
As their ghastly deeds all spill out
But nip in the bud any anger or revenge
Compassionate forgiveness needs to be felt
For in the grand old scheme of it all
There has to be those to play the part
Of the ‘bad’ guys, for the good to rise
So love them unconditionally from the heart
