When the insurrection is in the mind, it can never be quelled.
When the resurrection is in the heart, love flows eternal.
When compassion is in the words, healing springs forth
When the revolution is in the actions the game changes forever…
She’d been there before
in a time now past,
and caring, bleak
The future daunting,
taunting, twisted tales
Help me, she pleaded.
Let there be light
in these dark days
My hands are here for you
to use, as my soles
tread this sacred land.
And, my mind learns
from the clues
our ancestors left waiting
To reveal when the time
Was divine for the tryst
stumbled up mountains
and down again.
Faltering she wavered
waiting until the time
had come, as ordained
To stake her claim
She knew now
things were different
A phoenix rising
Tears shed for the people,
To cleanse the pain,
to wash away the lies
and the longing.
Space, created for love
hope of better days to come
Peace replaced weariness
and once again she rose,
A warrior born to shine.
To remove the shadows
Where fear once lived.
In my life, I’m Queen Bee. There are no rulers, except me. I will compromise with those who care. With those who love me and whose life I share I’m not here to do it their way though. Or to follow their map, or their way they go. I’m here to be me, and see what that brings. To follow and honour what makes my heart sing. I try to choose courage when danger is near. and my passion for life saves me from fear. You can’t understand and I don’t need you to. Just let me be me and I’ll let you be you. We are all Sovereign beings, since we were born. how is it possible we forgot this sweet song? So many distractions and places to hide. Anything that stops us looking inside. We have the power, we really always did. Encoded within, our own reference grid. An inner compass so strong and true leads to treasure, at the heart of you.
You brought me death, and showed me life.
Instead of joy, you brought me strife.
You showed me love comes in many forms,
And can bring the worst of thunderstorms.
You left me so low,
I didn’t know where to go.
I love you so much yet it hurt so deep.
That instead of life, you chose sleep.
I know you laid a path for me,
Something at the time I couldn’t see.
It’s ten years now, and baby what a ride.
So many signs, you are still by my side.
Your brothers and sisters have filled me up,
With so much love from the eternal cup.
When the time is right, my little girl.
I will join you for a whirl.
Dance the dances we never shared,
Show you just how much I cared.
I love you with all my heart,
Even though at times we feel so far apart.
I am with you, and you with me.
What love binds together lasts eternally.
