Note to Self: Conjure.

Love is freedom.

Love is freedom.

I remember you, wild
Freeing
‘fore you knew
You were the meaning
Of freedom.
Your being
What love looks like
Personified.
Before you realized
Before you needed to self-actualize
Before you went searching, outside
Binding yourself
Within yourself
Beyond your grasp.
Hurting, yourself
Afraid, you were not worthy.

I remember you holy
Whole
I remember you sanctified
A sanctuary for souls.
I remember you,
Your own salvation.
Prayers or spells
Before judgment
You saw no difference in them.
Conjuring.
Within yourself.
Power filled.
Humble.
As your thoughts and dreams became tangible
You believed them miracles
Taught trees grew
Without earth or roots.
You worshiped
An idol
A book named Bible
Til’ fruitless.
Longing to be planted.
Longing is,
A spell
Against yourself.
You surrendered your will.
Bid yourself to submitBaptized
To dead languages
And foreign male strangers.
Conjuring.
Shape shifter.
You became a misogynist
You called it a holy ghost dance
What you did
Before the whole congregation.
Grateful
To be baptized
And subjugated.
Conjuring.

Please,
Off your knees.
You’d have no needs
If you’d stop
Giving yourself away.
Pray
For the stars
And the moon
And the Sun
Which you are.
Conjure!
Know
Trees Are grounded!
Trees have roots
And so do you.
Take off your shoes.
Bury your heels
In the plush grass.
Your roots are vines
Of light
Reflecting the colors of your pastAncestors
Unveiling your path.
Dyed and muddied by your life
Feel the connection
Anchoring your instep
Feel your chakras align
Heal.
You, you are divine.
Conjure.
In spells and prayers.
Speak inwards
So loud
Your spirit is bound
To carry the sounds
Elevating.
You up and out
Of all the creations and manifestations
Conjured.

Speak
What spirit shows you.
Speak, like you know you.
Speak your dreams.
Speak lightening and fire
Speak your heart’s desire.
Speak.
You are the bar you are raising
You are your greatest expectation
You are a light
Beaming in the night
Leading yourself to herself
Home.
A spirit
Reckoning
With the flesh.
A mind
An ego
Reasoning against itself
A child who learned false facts
Reared to be self-destructive.
Speak nowConjuring
As a grown woman
No longer questioning
Loving herself.
Speak
Accepting yourself without exceptions
Or conditions.
Speak as one coming to fruition.
Embrace your intuition
Harness your strength
Speak with the power of your ancestors
Wield your influence
In every realm.
Speak your peace.
Speak.
You are free,
To conjure.
