A Warrior In Me

There is a warrior in me, a fierce inner fire— a Priestess who can access her own fervent power. There is a warrior in me who says "fuck on that" to hierarchy and patriarchy, to glass ceilings and walls of shame. There is a warrior in me who values truth above secrets and welcomes the discomfort of un-layering lies. There is a warrior in me armed in an ethic of love— for self, for others, for this wonder-filled world. There is a warrior in me who is learning to shine bright, easing out of the shadows of fear and regret. There is a warrior in me devoted to praise, harvesting gratitude from small moments each day. There is a warrior in me who weeps deeply and often, releasing sorrow as stones into the river of grief. There is a warrior in me who walks with bare feet, rooting deep into the life-force of this sacred Earth. There is a warrior in me, a wise elder, a healer whose work is emerging as a refuge of beauty. There is a warrior in me guided by the energy of the moon, waxing towards fullness, to be a light in the dark.
