Today I Rise


Where are you?
Where are you,
Little girl with broken wings
But full of hope?
Where are you,
Wise woman covered in wounds?
Where are you?

Today is the day
I will not sit still and
Give in anymore.

Today I rise.

I am bruised
But I will get up
And walk again.

Today I rise.

I don’t care
If you ignore
My beauty.

Today I rise.

Through the alchemy
Of my darkest nights
I heal and thrive.

Today I rise.

I move through the world
With confidence and grace.

I open my eyes
And I am ready to face
My wholeness as a woman
And my limitless capacities.

I will walk my path with audacity.

Today I rise.

I reconnect with the many aspects of myself.

I’m in awe of the reality I can create.

I am a queen.
I am a healer,
A wise woman,
A wild woman.

I will rise and be.

I am a rebel.

I will wake up and fight.

I am a mother,
And I am a child.

I will no longer disguise
My sadness and pain.

I will no longer suffer
Or complain.

I am black and I am white.

There’s no reason to hide.

Where are you?

Where are you?

I call upon Khali to kiss me alive.

I transform my anger to power.

No more heartache
Or strife.

The world is missing
What I am ready to give…
My wisdom
My sweetness
My love
And my hunger for peace.

I weep with the trees
And the rivers
And the Earth in distress.

I rise and shine
And I’m ready to go on my quest.

Today I rise without doubt or hesitation.

Today I rise without excuses or procrastination.

Today I call upon my sisters
To join a movement of
Resoluteness and concern.

Today is my call to action.

I will fulfill my mission without further distraction.

Today is the day.

Today I will start
To offer the world
The wisdom of my heart.
