Personal Transformation


A Poem by K. Brendi Poppel


Growing, growing beyond…beyond myself

Into myself…that I have always been but more

Bursting, bursting, forth


Like a butterfly emerging from the cocoon

A flowering of feelings from the fragile shell

Wings wanting to fly upward

Up, beyond this form of flesh

Breaking the bonds of time’s containment

Space to fly


I am different

Another stage of development…reaching, reaching out,

Another age due to dawn

The light living within carving out ever deepening channels

Of communication and love

Between us, through us, to us

He is everywhere providing for His cosmic children of destiny


Expanding our capacities for growth beyond self into others

How much love there is

How much love

When we tap into the Source of it all

Father God, won’t you help us to transform ourselves

And thus the world

Dawning brotherhood of man

Not mere words but realities… reality

Really, really love

Just love

Just love
