Manna

Dearest one,
My love to hold
Made for you
This liquid gold

Manna dripping
From my breast
This loving heart
Felt through my chest

We make the space
Connection strong
You’ll have the trust
A life’s built on

Healing our
Ancestral line
Breaking from
The bonds of time

Healing hearts
Our true intent
To turn around
All past neglect

We heal ourselves
We heal the world
While I nurse
My beloved girl

This picture is from Lucy’s first birthday. I never shared it but I’ve loved it since. Today feels appropriate as these words flow through me. Sending love to all the mamas doing their best to nurture their littles.

Let The Music Flow

I’m feeling sober in a world full of drunks
Looking around and wondering how
I’ve traveled so far that I can’t understand
What’s happening now in my own homeland

Dissonance reigns and it feels insane
It’s blasting in my ears and it’s hurting my brain
I can’t say I’m right and I won’t say they’re wrong
But it’s clear that we’re singing two very different songs

But it matters not what they say around me
And it matters not who they think they are
It matters not how loud their echoes sound
My heart and mind will remain unbound

Like a sweet little bird, let the music come through me
Oh My Lord, let the music flow
I’ll sing with you while I stand my truth
‘Cause your melody plays clearly in my heart

When I Die

I pray that when I die
I am ready to go
That no part of me whispers
No… no… no…

When death knocks at my door
That to feel into my core
Knowing there is more
As I let my spirit pour out

Love all over my family
Love all over my friends
Let my love flood the world
That this love may never end

That my body sheds its pain
And my mind is no longer vain
That I am free to soar
And my love will still remain

No clinging to the earth
No purpose left unfurled
But an earnest life well-lived
Given all I had to give

Love all over my family
Love all over my friends
Let my love flood the world
That this love may never end
