She is the daughter of pillars
From a lineage of women carved from stone
Their blood forged of fire and liquid steel
Their strength the foundation
Upon which she trains her shaky legs
To hold up the weight of the world.
Oh how she has learned to be closed
In a world where open is a wound left to bleed out
To keep guarded under lock and key desires
For fear they would never come true once uttered
Every unanswered prayer etching a deeper river
Of independence into her very bones
Oh fierce daughter,
When will you surrender?
Not in defeat, you see
But to your own longing and destiny?
When will you open your eyes
And read what is written on the walls of your heart?
You who are an alchemy of fire and shadow
Cast of strong feral stone
Oh how deeply you feel
To the depths of the seas of your being
Though you have always been a rock
You were never meant to do it alone
To break open first she must crack
Let the light in with each shift of the sands
Release the grip and begin her slip
Letting fall the reins from her hands
But what of the pillar once shattered
When it lets go the weight of the world?
Crumbling to the waiting Earth below
Into the arms of transformation
Wholeness found in ruin
At long last
“When will the stone open its tomb?
When will the waves give over their foam?
You will not die, nor come home, O my lady.”
