'What power is lost in translation, is refound in understanding' It has been said that a word is most powerful in its original language and dialect. But the translation from one language to many gives that word a newer, greater power; to be understood by not one people, but many.

It is my soul alone that writes these words
For nothing else can speak such force
It is my heart alone that seeks this truth
For nothing else can stay this course
It is all my being that is poured before my Goddess
So She may tell me what I am to hear
It is all my thoughts that turn to Her in darkness
So that She may choose what I am to fear
Though these thoughts are my own
And not for the deliverance of mankind
I will speak them now with Her as my witness
That in such thoughts, my heart will not bind
It is my blood that I spill to feed the ground
That the earth may partake of my soul
It is my will that I give to Her
That she may decide to know
I seek not freedom from this ground
Nor this sky
Nor this fire
Nor sea
I seek not freedom from this soul
For these elements bind me to Her
And it is my soul alone that writes these words
For nothing else can speak such truth.
