The Rising

One day your soul will call to you with a holy rage.
“Rise up!” it will say…
“Stand up inside your own skin.”
Unmask your unlived life…feast on your animal heart.

Unfasten your fist…let loose the medicine in your own hand.
Show me the lines…I will show you the spoor of the ancestors.
Show me the creases…I will show you the way to water.
Show me the folds… I will show you the furrows for your healing.

“Look!” it will say…the line of life has four paths –
one with a mirror,
one with a mask,
one with a fist,
one with a heart.

One day, your soul will call to you with a holy rage.
-Ian McCallum
