Shapeshifter

I am the Maker. Shaper. Breaker.
Made of shadow and of snow.
I am the Maker. Shaper. Breaker.
Made of shifting, ever flow.

I am the Maker. Shaper. Breaker.
Circles are the way of life.
I am the Maker. Shaper. Breaker.
I am the cord. I am the knife.

Break

This mask must break before I shatter

Lest worst of all the things that matter

Die in the dust beneath the feet

Of those who told me who to be

 

It shatters and I fall apart

Pick up the pieces of my heart

Lay a mosaic of broken dreams

This skin was never what it seemed

 

Leave behind this empty shell

Off self-made misery and hell

And fill the void inside my heart

With things I love, hold dear and art

Hold

Love hold my hope
Love hold my dreams
Not too tight
So they may breathe

Just so close
That I may know
That they are safe
And time will show

If they were ever
Meant for me
If not my love
Then set them free

Rising

Hail the Dawnstar, shining bright
Chase out the horrors of the night
Drive out the shadows, ghosts and fears
Heal the nightmares, dry the tears

Sunlight blazing, eyes grow bright
Heart be joyful, kissed by light
Spirits rising, soul take flight
Dawn has come, farewell the night

Cast your flames out far and near
Impale the wraiths upon your spear
Chase out the horrors of the night
Hail the Dawnstar, shining bright

Let Go

Let go

Their path
Is not your path
Living life in their footsteps
Will not make you happy

***

Let go

Of the empty promises
You made yourself and others
If they tear at the fabric of your soul
Maybe they were never yours to keep

***

Let go

Of what no longer sets you on fire
Let it die gracefully
Rather than trying to rekindle
What is already ash

***

Let go

Of the dreams
That were never yours
To begin with

And let magic breathe life
Into what is left
And what is yet to be

In the spaces between
