Divine Mother

I wrote this poem last night after much research for an upcoming article about the sacred feminine principle, and a wonderful conversation w a Facebook friend… I’d like to dedicate this piece to my mom, Sylvie Kerr. She has always known the light inside of me, even when my perception was too dark for me to see it.

Divine Mother

She called me forth from the depths of the abyss.

Answering, I stepped forward into her shocking light

With eyes new and vulnerable, and so was blinded.

Stumbling in the dark, I clawed my way up the

Jagged cliffs of the great mountain.

When I summited, my fear of her awesome power

Knocked me over the other side, and I fell

Again onto the valley floor where she

Swallowed me up in her sweet embrace.

Then in the safety of her arms, I saw

Her glory with eyes renewed and felt

Her fearsome power rise within me.

My own light reflected back to me, a tiny star

In the great expanse of her night.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always been a very inquisitive and observant person. I have also always felt as though there is something "not quite right" about the world. Prior to acquiring some basic information about the issues affecting our reality, natural law, the real definition of obfuscated words, and many other topics, I lived in a state of complete fear. My whole reality was consumed with one fear or another, and it began to cause me more and more suffering in my personal life. After developing an understanding of the above mentioned topics however, I am no longer stuck in the fear paradigm imposed on most of society. Thankfully, being curious about many things has spurred a tendency in me to research countless topics. In my quest for knowledge and truth, I have come to certain understandings about the world that we live in, the laws and constraints that we are (often unwittingly) subjected to in order that the system that we currently inhabit continues. Here, I will be posting my observations, exposing wrongdoings going on in our community and around the world, and suggesting some solutions required to alter the reality that we presently experience. I hope that anyone visiting this page will at least come away with some useful knowledge that can be directly applied to their life, and at best, share the information with others.

  4. […] I wrote these two pieces while struggling with an eating disorder. I decided to post them as a contrast to my latest piece, “Divine Mother“. […]
