Eyes Of The Goddess

She closed her eyes in eternal sleep
Her dreams fading into nothing
In life she was her parent's goddess
Kind and compassionate and loving

Her tired body could hold no more
Her soul traumatised and fading
And as she crossed into the light
The Goddess of love stood waiting

Into her arms went the tormented soul
Eyes filled with love She caressed
For the good of all she had sacrificed
Her time had come to be blessed

Her wretched rapists unfeeling and brutal
Think that in their hands lie power
But when they meet that mighty Goddess
In Her eyes will they see anger and fire.

The Goddess metes out to every soul
Karmic lessons due
Swift to love and swift to bless
And swift to punish too

The eyes of the Goddess watch us all
Can you feel her stare?
Fiery and rage filled if you stray
Or tender with love and care.

  6. beautiful composition, this reminded of a black and white Hindi movie, ' Do Aankhein Barah Haath' in which prisoners stopped their escape plan by seeing the divinity of his eyes in the eyes of god at a temple they saw while running.

    1. Thanks Cifar. Haven't seen that movie. God works in mysterious ways and I'm sure we can see Him if we look hard enough.

  7. Sadly there is no fear, no remorse in the heart of the people who commit such heinous crime. The change has to come from a deeper level, from the core root of the society - it is not out of fear people will stop doing it - they have to see it for the wrong it is. A lesson the nation has to pass on for the generations to come.

    1. True Abhra. But change does not happen overnight. Anyway, my poem was written from the perspective of the soul as it crosses over into spirit.

  10. with the way things are going, I don't think God would look with kind eyes. Karma will not be that forgiving. Brilliant poem Suzy.

    1. Thanks Rajlakshmi. Glad you liked it. But I'm sure God and Goddess hope that we redeem ourselves.

    1. HI Naba, I think we should live in love rather than in fear.

  12. "Karmic lessons due" one hopes. This really strikes a chord... starting out so gently and then turning red-hot with anger, rightly so.

    1. Thanks Marian. I think the Goddess is so benevolent that she gives us so many chances to redeem ourselves. Her fire comes when there is no remorse.

  13. One can but hope.. but I would prefer that they would feel the angst and regret.. repenting on this earth.. I just hope there is an afterlife correcting the misjustice carried out on earth

    1. Hi Bjorn. I think we get many chances to redeem ourselves. I like your choice of words - correcting the misjustice. It has a softer and more loving tone.

  15. Nicely written and thought out, Suzy. Actually this is the nature of our God. He is a loving God, loves us with father-like love. Yet if we put other god's ahead of Him he becomes jealous and vindictive toward the evil doer.
    We have a saying, God hates sin but loves the sinner. For sure He is a forgiving God, I know that from my own experiences..

    1. Thanks Jim. So true that God is love and only love. I can't imagine Spirit to be vindictive or jealous. But yes for sure he is a forgiving, merciful and compassionate God.
