Genesis kisses

It's Like a Whirlwind

The whirlwind had taken me

my strength

my potency

flailed against

the fire and vicious wrath

of contemporary existence

Soul flayed

artistry rendered silent

I wept

yet you took me

to arms

to quiet

to soothe

with virtuosity of worship

gifting presence of spirit

Enough to anchor us both

on this our verdant earth

as you painted the heavens

within my heart

Calmed beyond measure

spirit nurtured

empowered to endure

more than just another day

I find my dancers soul

flickering back into life

Words begin once again

to form and dance in my aching brain

Genesis kisses

Lightest touch of celestial grace

to ignite my heathen soul

Now a proud daughter

Errant

Just to keep it real.

Here I am not dancing with my eyes closed.

 

Beloved,

Let us make this world

something to be voraciously proud of

I was born into a darkness

I did not understand

With my own two hands

I learned to fathom

to become all I could

to continue becoming

tirelessly,

I work to make it a kinder place

we have great influence

if you give the world

the love you want to feel

 

I post this link because these two songs together nicely encapsulate the world I was born into and who I have become.

Bear with me, have patience, humour me if you will and listen to this lengthy and fun (bottle of vino anyone?) live performance.

There is another option for those that have ‘become comfortably numb’
