For once I am breaking my own rule on this site, & am posting a poem – because this poem is absolutely What I Am, and fits with the spirit of this blog, too. This poem is in my heart right now.
Do not mistake my kindness for weakness;
Do not think that as a Healer I am helpless,
My heart is open but not unprotected –
The danger has not gone undetected.
I will not falter and I shall not yield,
I accept this Power I can wield,
I fight not with a weapon in my hand –
It is a different battle for which I stand.
I understand there may be pain,
If I do not venture there will be no gain
To pretect my community, kith and kin –
Every battle shall I face and plan to win.
You see but do not know what you see,
Shadows on the edge that dance with me
Look further than your eye Sight
I walk determined with the Spirit Light
I know the Darkness that is surrounding,
With my Spirit Guides I go hunting and a-hounding
For you I promise I will never weaken,
It is my calling and my duty to be a Spirit Beacon.
My Strength and courage flows on the inside
Fear will never turn me aside
I accepted this challenge and this Path
To walk between the Dark and Light is my Task.
My Shield-Drum and Voice will always be at hand;
Ready and alert shall I ever stand
I walk the Otherworlds with no barrier
Call me not Fool but call me –
Light & Blessings
