Song for a Heart Felt Night (The Queen)
The Queen took Centre Stage in Her own Life.
Once she began to Embrace her true Self,
her intrinsic qualities, she came to know herself
and the World came to know Her, too.
For how can anyone truly Know
someone who does not Know themselves?
Reclaiming piece by piece,
shadow by shadow,
Releasing the Torture of her daily existence.
The Queen had been tied in her own shackles:
the steely grip of repressing Truth
of submitting her will to others.
of her self-attack,
laid them down and looked at them cold
after her long, sweaty, dark battle.
The handcuffs fell off
and the doors to Freedom Opened.
Light poured in where darkness no longer reigned.
Fruit trees bloomed where once there was shade.
She got up from the floor,
out of the corner she’d been crouched in
and stood Tall.
Suddenly she could see the Horizon,
the Vista of possibility within and without.
Suddenly her shoulders dropped down
and she saw for the first time
the Light she Always knew was hers,
the Divine Light of Ancestral Teachings.
“Glamazon,” they said when they saw her standing,
“Royal,” they said with a glint in their eye.
“Place that Crown upon your head,
we need you to serve us dear Queen.
We’ve been waiting for you to Speak Your Truth,
to Quench our thirst.
And so she went in, deep within and took a long
slow deep inhale like a pull off a sacred plant and said
“My children I have been asleep so long
and only awoken just now.
I have had and now have many guides to lead me
through the labyrinth maze back to the Nature of Myself.
I have come so far yet travelled only into the darkest places
of my psyche, my Soul,
now reborn on this Solstice of Summer.
I vow to Root my feet on this Earth.
To arrive here fully
in this body, knowing she is my home,
my Earth temple and I embrace her.
I vow to Speak my Truth and listen deeply to my Heart.
I vow to grow in my own Empowerment
and aid in the True Empowerment of others.
I now embrace
the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine within Myself.
I Honour Myself fully.
I strive to Honour the other fully,
knowing the other is a Reflection of Myself.
Reverence, to be seen, is True Power, True Healing.
I vow to hold space for you, to be there for you
and to do the same for myself.
I vow to empty my cup or fill it
or take a bath
or an Ocean Walk
Embracing the Bounty that is self-care, self-love.
By Loving myself, may I Love the other.
It is only now with the release of shame,
that I reclaim
My Whole Deep Truth.
And from this Death, a new Beginning.
Now I am FREE to move forward.
No longer stuck, no longer shamed.
I stand in my Truth, my Fullness, my completeness.
The Queen, the Goddess she Reigns.
