Wrapped in shiny paper and a big bow on top.
A Presence that assures Peace and Harmony.
A protective arm around hurt and sorrow.
An Ear to the ground that feels heavy footsteps as they trample near.
An eye to see beyond Violence and Tyranny.
Women raise your arm and quiet the Sea.
Feel it rumble underneath your embrace,
As it gently raises people from the silent cry of hopelessness.
Into the open Sky!
A clear view from above.
Able to see mountains and valleys.
Navigate the turbulent Sea.
Await the wind that moves your view.
