“Love Rising”


I will not
Fall with
The world.

I will
Rise with
Beating
Heart with
Ancient wisdom of
Ancestral
Intent with
God in
Spirit and
Presence of
Mind I
Will
Over
Come
Our
Darkest
Hours.

The shadows of
Hate loom
Large like
Puppets of
Hand
Against
Midnight walls
Reenacting
A history
We
Never
Thought
We’d see
Again.

Yet
Here
We
Are.

Here
We are
Watching
A moonless
Night slip
Into our
Common
Dream of
Waking
Hope of
Learning from
Our past of
Making
Peace with
Ourselves
And
Each
Other on
Our journey…

No, tonight
There is
No sense of
Peace.

We
Are
Lost
In
Our
Own
Darkness.

A storm of
Oppressive
Hate of
White out
Blizzard
Conditions
Blinding
Our way
Forward
Has altered
Our point of
Reference.

Which way is home?

We are
Turned
Around.

The tide of
Humanity is
Awash in
A flood of
Negative
Emotion as if
Our moon has
Shifted
Its orbit and
Pulled us all
Out to sea.

Yet, we
Must step
Out of
Our darkness
Out of
Our fear to
See
The truth.

More than
Ever
We must
Live by
The beating of
Our hearts.

We must
Live by
The promise
Of light by
The cycle of
The moon
We must see
The truth of
Who we are.

We are love rising!

We are being
Hidden by
The darkness of
Our time of
A lesson
Collectively
We have
Not
Fully
Learned.

Yet, as
Certain as
The moon
Exists
Even in
An empty
Sky
It is
Certain
We
Exist in
Love.

We will
Rise in
Love.

Love
Eternally
Present is
The center of
Our
Existence
And it is
As stable as
The sun
Giving
Life to
Our planet
Earth.

The energy to
Rise in
Love is
At the
Center of
Humanity.

This is
Our
Time to
Unite in
The truth of
All life being
One of
Love
Overcoming
Hate and
Fear.

We don’t
Exist
Independent of
Each other.

Rather
It is
In cooperation with
Each other with
Life
That we exist
Today.

We can
Rely on
Each other.

We need
Each
Other.

We
Can
Be
Love
Rising.

We are
Love rising.

Love
Ever
Present
Shines as
The goodness of
Human triumph of
Loving our
Neighbors as
Ourselves of
Redemptive
Compassion of
Empathy
Feeling.

We are
The strength of
Love which
Historically has
Overcome
All
Odds.

Love is
The reason
We are
Here now.

Yet, we
Need to
Remember
Why darkness
Exists.

Love castes
Its shadow as
An opportunity to
Grow in
Truth.

Truth
Lives in
The duality of
Night and
Day of
Seasons to
Grow and
Quilt of
Human
Love and
Fear.

And
It is within
The shadows of
Love’s light
The story of
Humanity on
Midnight
Walls is
Told and
We like
Children
Watch
The tale of
Winter’s
Darkness
Encasing
The hearts of
So many with
Terror and
Fear.

It is this story
Our story
The story of
Our duality that
Shakes us
To our
Core.

It is
A story
We know
All too
Well.

Over
And
Over
Again
We have
Witnessed
Winter’s
Return as
The temperatures
Drop and
Ice quickly
Freezes
The human
Heart
Stopping it
Cold with
Anger with
Rage with
Indifference with
Apathy
And
With
Fear
Fear
Fear
Fear
Our
Brothers
Sisters
Mothers
And
Fathers
Suddenly
Find
Themselves
Missing
The beat of
Love that
Warms
The human
Heart.

And without
The rhythmic
Pounding of
Love
Pushing
Us to
Dance to
Feel to
Move with
Action to
Be with
Good intention
We
Have
Nothing
To celebrate
And
Nothing to
Live for
Beyond
Just
Surviving.

Without
The
Constant
Beating of
Love
Progressing
Us
Forward
Life is
Scary and
Dark and
Cold and
Nothing.

It is
A reminder that
In the darkest
Center of
The shadows
Caste
There is
Very
Little
Light
To
See.

And it’s hard to find a way out of
The darkness.

So we
In
The
Light
We
Must
Love
Like
Never
Before.

We must
Drum up
The love.

We must
Make
Love
Love
Love
The noise
They hear.

We must
Light the fire
Of truth
Everywhere as
A guide to
Map
The way
Home.

We must
Show them
The way.

Bring them
Out into
The light
To soften
The fear to
Easy the
Hate to
Free
The human
Heart from
Its icy
Prison.

We will not
Fall with
The world.

We know
The light.

We understand
Our duality.

We are
Living
The lesson.

We are
Guided by
The truth…

We are love rising.
We are love rising!

Now is our time!

Let’s make some noise!

Love!
Love!
Love!

We are love rising.
