Death Begets Life

Poem By Larry Jaffe

The body a mere dish of fragile
Thou is of sterner stuff

The spirit commanding and proud

Do not confuse one with the other
Do not be lured into flesh
When thou is of soul

Thou are not made of anything
Or by anyone

Thou creates
And are not created

Death begets life
A new form divined by thee
A new beginning to thrust life
With beauty and accord

Do not get caught up in death
Instead get caught up in life

Thou art spirit
Thou art soul
Thou art you

My eyes are broken
they tire from
bashing of principles

Unleash The Bonds

Formed of deceit
And let the spirit fly
