hear me child, and know me for who i am.
i have been with you since you were born, and
i will stay with you until you return to me at the final dusk.
i am the one who calls to you at the end of your journey.
after the day is done, my children find blessed rest in my embrace.
i am the passionate & seductive lover who inspires poets to dream.
i am the womb from which all things are born.
i am the shadowy, still tomb.
all things must come to me and bare their breasts
to die and be reborn to the whole.
i snip the threads that bring my children home to me.
i am the sorceress that will not be ruled.
the weaver of time. the teacher of mysteries.
i slit the throats of the cruel and drink the blood of the heartless.
swallow your fear and come to me.
here you will discover true beauty, strength, and courage.
i am the fury which rips the flesh from injustice.
i am the glinting sword that protects you from harm.
i am the glowing forge that transforms inner demons into tools of power.
open yourself to my embrace and overcome.
i am the crucible in which all aspects of yourself merge, a rainbow of union.
i am velvet depth in the night sky, swirling mists ever shrouded in mystery.
i am the chrysalis in which you will face that which terrifies you
and from which you will blossom forth, vibrant and renewed.
seek me at the crossroads, and you shall be transformed,
for once you look upon my face, there is no return.
i am the fire that kisses the shackles away.
i am the cauldron in which all opposites grow to know each other in truth.
i am the web which connects all things.
i am the healer of all wounds, the warrior who rights all wrongs in their time.
i make the weak strong. i make the arrogant humble.
i raise up the oppressed and empower the disenfranchised.
i am justice tempered with mercy.
most importantly, child... i am you.
seek me within and without, and you will be strong. know me.
venture into darkness so you may awaken balanced, illuminated & whole.
take my love with you everywhere & find power within to be who you wish.
