The Dark Goddess Speaks

As Maya spoke

her voice deep and rich

I crawled

a thin scrawly white girl

into her dark full lap and laid

my head against her breasts

She rocked me as she sang of

the power if have to Stand

the commitment I have

to rise above my ignorance

Her strength penetrated me

with each of her blessed exhales

Her story told in laughter and tears

in prose and song

opened the door to my story

I began to live for me

She will leave us soon -

this blessed Mother

this extraordinary Force

sent here by the Goddess

with a voice

to reach

the World

with the power to teach

love, courage, compassion

commitment, peace

A Dark Goddess walks among us

Last night I sat at

Her feet

and

Listened
