"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 8:13]

Poem, "New Beginning"

Poem, “New Beginning”
By Eric Gajewski
From the work, "Fortress of the Soul"

Psalms 60:4
For thou hast been my hope; a tower of strength against the face of the enemy.

   Please play the video below then proceed to read the poem while you listen

There is no sight for tomorrow
Without first the eyes for this day
Uponst the horizon I see this painted clearly
Thus, take heed, that your heart might not leave
From your only true love
The One Who is the same yesterday, today and forever
Whose Sacred Heart still bleeds for sinners upon the altar
Yet modern man whose “legs of nature” runs "to and fro’
Trying to catch a glimpse at “the latest” through the “inward window”
Scratching only the surface he sacrifices unto “gods” already seen
And when it shall be taken he sinks to find what his ailing heart hast sown
But in this dark his “true self” he shall come to know
Yea, Our God is a Mighty Fortress who still reigns
And upon the seventh floor we still adore, we still believe
For this is an Eagles Creed, Father, Son & Holy Ghost
Our Creator, Redeemer & Sanctifier, Thee Most Holy Trinity
Every eagle has his own cliff to leap
Every soul hast its own temptations to fight but this only breeds opportunity
For with strong wings to embrace the “rough winds” an Eagle hast no need
Because Hope keeps him afloat above all life’s “worries”
Reason, although good, can only help us to know
But Is still beneath us in the sea below, shining the Face of the Son above
And so it is told......In every eagle’s journey
We take what God grants and bless Him for He is holy
We embrace what He allows because He still is “All-Knowing”
O’ eagles! Wherest the devil leads in false light despair wilst follow assuredly
But only Hope knows that in the deep, long and cold winter of the soul
A new flower is awaiting patiently to bud under the Son in this new spring
Wherest His Presence never grows old...
So build thy nest wisely now, take refuge and make thy heart His home
Let us live well by first dying unto self
Because there is no dying twice unless your eternal sentence is hell
Harken heareth an Eagle speak!
Wilst ye still keep silent or turnest the other cheek?
O’ Who is with Me?
Yea, my eyes within have hoped for and have seen thy Face in glory
But for now I keepest Thy Fire ablaze wilst still remaining in body
And when the dark comes to knock upon thy door trying to sell you anxiety
Mayst all the eagles gather and shout with one Voice in unity
“For Thou art my Hope an Unconquerable Fortress of Strength against all my enemies”
So fly high in thy skies divine
Ready thyself to descend and to usher in man’s new destiny once again thru Mary
Pray ye, savest me O’ God, from every greed and mayst we flee
Towards the heavens far from every flattering praise and the trap of money
Asking to grow strong in virtue
Sustaining the weak & encouraging the weary
For every eagle excites in the first crack of thunder and bolt of lightning
Because in holy suffering he delights
Knowing that in charity there is no end
And thru the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady
In which we do take refuge in this Great Tree
Shall we one day land in the Day of Restoration whence the Eagle shall speak
And we shall usher in the New Beginning….

Harken heareth an Eagle speak!
Upon the Wings of Faith & Hope we fly with Eyes open wide in Charity
