Of all energy and light

Of all energy and light
All that I long and fail to be
Let clear light forever shine

To share and guide this life of mine.
Though what I dream and what
I do

Help me light,
oppressed by things undone,
whose dreams and
hopes were one

I wrote this many years ago, and I wish I would have wrote a journal back then to also write what I was feeling. I was in my early 20s, new marriage, young daughter, full time job. I am not even sure what the poem's mood was at the time. Any ideas would be refreshing.


  1. Hi,
    I really like your blog. I have posted an award for you on my blog. Stop by and pick it up!
    Take Care,
    Janet :)

  2. You use the word "oppressed". I think you wrote it when you were feeling depressed. Here's my path into the unconscious: Oppression, suppression, repression, impression. Depression is fear and impotence: These are characteristics of the dark unconscious. Marriage opens the doors to repressed memories, lets in "light", through subjugation / subjectivity... regression (and children). Thus your "undoing".

  3. Cool poem, I'm not sure what you were thinking or feeling. Sounds like a wish for the future. And for things to be better then they were before. That's my take on it.
