Let me be a newborn again.
I am ready.
I want to conquer the world,
Desire new eyes and a canvas
Fresh, to be painted when
Darkness awaits me
bestowing glorious light.
Where all wise ones are with me,
And finders have walked this path.
I could be free, loving these chains…
But that mind is lost in the thicket of lies.
How can I allow myself to be innocent?
Yet change lingers on the horizon,
messengers of fire own the air.
So I refuse to give this world my dignity.
Not giving up on life nor death,
no part of myself shall be denied their love.
Having chosen my door,
I won’t look back.
My freedom lies in the strength to trust.
All heavens are with me,
And their powers carry me far.
When I let go of the harbour of my old ways,
I throw myself into this universe.
One step and I am new.
A new breath, new life, a moment.
This pain is different,
this excitement unknown.
A dream of a dragon, a fire that’s mine:
Life has been given,
the birth to a god upon me.
Greatness amidst the ashes
and I shall believe again.
I can feel the powers, see myself growing tall,
And light in my veins
keeps my heart drumming.
My body a place of prayer,
and my being worships life.
Unimaginable worlds are all my children,
my home, and I am their great mother.
I am everything I always longed to be,
I am that and more.
