Feel Me Rise

Down here I am in a funk
Down here oh the aches and pains and heartache
Down here the nights are restless
And the work of the soul never ends
Down here I try to figure it all out
Only there is just no figuring
I keep my eyes on the skies
I keep my heart in the heavens
I know there is love all around me
Above and so below
I look and listen
I pray and believe
I know that love surrounds me
I rise and fall
I laugh and I cry
I wish and hope and imagine
I am the hope
I am the dream
I am the Goddess resurrected
I am the sweet surrender
The blood
The sacrifice
The prize
I am the heaven
And I am the hell
I am Woman
Feel me Rise

The Sword of Love and Truth

Marius Michael George

When the hour nears
and you slip away
into the whispers
of the long and lonely night
the angels are guarding
and hear your silent prayer
for there are not many
who can stand with you this hour
but one appears
for she too can not sleep
for the time is at hand for the two
to be as one
united in their prayers
united in their past
like a river overflowing
with ancient stories to tell
slowly and thoughtfully
uncovering and remembering
comforting and understanding
as only they must do
for the secret that they share
is like a precious jewel
made of sacrifice and glory
and the sword of love and truth

The Sacrifice

Rassouli_Tribute_to_Khayyam

Rassouli

It is not meant to be understood by all

but those that do

those that walk this path of sacrifice

for the many

know the territory well

living and breathing the vow

and raising her cup

evermore
