Once Wasn't Enough
Day by day I go by thinking that
I won't make the same mistake again,
constantly telling myself that it will work out,
sadness must be my friend.
I allow myself to believe so much that it became a religion,
experiences so heartbreaking I never once visioned.
When I look back it is as if for those moments I was thrown out into space,
reminiscing on those feelings I never imagine myself in such place.
Giving so much but gets nothing back in return,
but still I continue to give having no concern,
about setting boundaries or limits,
but what does having a heart permits?
Is it inhumane to give your all when you give?
Its like giving me life and telling me not to live.
I forget all conditions, compromising for me was always a must,
without timing myself I continue to pour my trust.
Dismissing all selfishness and thinking about the we and us.
Here it comes again without no warning,no break,
how much really can this heart of mine take?
Not remembering about what happened before I greet the next with a fresh mind,
should I have given myself some more time?
Trying that never made much of a difference, it slapped me in the face once again,
love dont love me and neither is it my friend.
The urges and the pain drove me deeper totally disconnecting me from myself,
thinking that time will heal I ran right into someone else.
Yearning for that feeling to belong,
sadness became so automatic losing the whole essence of being strong.
I lost my identity,didn't know who I was anymore,
all this time I never once considered this before.
Stuck in my imagination, lost my way,
my seemingly happiest moments consistently left me in dismay.
I still haven't given up and I will not let this stop me from loving,
from trusting or taking risk,from learning and giving, pain will not stop me from living.
The essence of life is experiencing both good and bad,
creating good memories while erasing the sad ones I had.
Once wasn't enough but I still continue to try,
and if you were to ask me now I'd tell you that he is the guy.
by Warrior Sistren
From the hills, and the valleys comes the warriess,
Rising like the sun, and shining.
Her steps steady, nappy hair glistening in the light,
And in the swing of her hips,
A surety of all that’s right.
I am this wombman,
In this time, for this moment,
In my presence, love so potent.
My gold within shines beautifully,
For all to see,
Truly manifesting all I can be.
Everything I’ve gained is a just reward,
I could not choose to be a coward.
My Life, I savour,
Over and Over,
Giving Thanks for Life’s Strength,
Love and its power.
Every moment I have is divine,
To create all I can imagine and design.
I value my experiences for all their worth,
My golden life, with its golden moments, in this earth.
I am the warriess,
I am part of all things,
As all things exist in me,
Take the same look inside yourself,
And you will see.
Let the truth that surfaces sink all the way in,
As you ponder your very great beginning,
Listen to your heart,
No time to false start.
Stand firmly in self love, and affirmation.
Let your dreams come to fruition.
Utilize your intuition.
Your inner voice speaks, are you listening?
You are oneness, with everything,
Life and the powers of creation are here
There is absolutely NOTHING to fear.
Acknowledge your uniqueness.
Embrace yourself and you find no weakness.
I am strong,
This is my warriess song.
Let the Warrior and Warriess Nation Arise
Babylon will surely capsize.
As this Warrior Nation must rise, will rise….
