This human journey can make you forget who you are. One of the jobs of community is to remind you of the truth of who you are. My community has reminded me that I come from women who had such humanity they nursed babies (that they could have killed) that they knew would grow up to rape their daughters and kill their sons. They were and I am more than enough.
More Than Enough
I bring the Spirit of Fire The Eternal Flame burns in me through the voices of the ancestors guiding my every step The Eternal Flame burns in me through the passion that pulls me towards that which I love The Eternal Flame burns in me through the intuition that I carry and the truth that I speak When my Flame burns high you gain sight and understanding through the ancestors, through your dreams, and your own instinct
I bring the Spirit of Water The Troubled Waters live in me as I bridge communities together The Troubled Waters live in me through the emotions that float to the surface The Troubled Waters live in me as I channel grace for forgiveness and reconciliation My Water heals and transforms with a gentle flow
I bring the Spirit of the Earth Mother Earth lives in me, in my walk, in my stance, in the holding of my deep roots Mother Earth lives in me in the foundation that she provides through me for so many people Mother Earth lives in me in my ability to create and give birth to the new When I shift the earth quakes
I bring the Spirit of the Minerals The Ancient Minerals live in me through the stories of those who have gone before The Ancient Minerals live in me through a knowing that seems to come out of nowhere The Ancient Minerals live in me through the wisdom that I carry in my bones My Mineral runs deep and wise and connects the past, present, and future
I bring the Spirit of Nature The Playful Nature lives in me through magic that transforms and grows The Playful Nature lives in me standing at the gates of all Rites of Passage The Playful Nature lives in me as the trickster spreading joy and laughter My Nature tosses aside the mask that you wear to unveil the truth of who you really are I bring the spirit of fire, water, earth, mineral, and nature and I am more than enough.
