Girl Called Silence
Age Group: Adult
As dawn appeared she realised the world was one cruel place to be a woman. Her femininity suppressed by patriarchy. Her one belief in a god just fair began to flounder. She could tell she was being watched, every second of every minute of every day, she felt as though she was being judged. Her hair swinging in the wind, her eyes welled up. She felt surrounded yet alone in her misery... in her life. And in the twilight hours, she fell to her knees and out came her tortured cry: "Why? Why have you forsaken me???"
Candle flames encompassing the blissful enchantment. Oh, how she longed to be touched with his gentle hand, just to be kissed by god. Equality eluded her. The stories she was told have not come close to her ideals. She realises everything is not as it seems. She recognises the oncoming storm as symbolic of answers she's longed for all her life. Her fingertips tingle, energy dying to break out.
She continues to cry. Floods of tears, the river of life within. The knowledge and wisdom in her tears fall on the women of the world and she says: "We shall inherit the world."
Unsafe in life yet safe in the arms of her faith in the one just fair, the harp begins to sound. She stands by the ocean, on the beach known as desire and this makes her feel alive again. The sun begins to set. It's warmth enticing. It makes her want to walk out into the ocean... deep down into the ocean, the waves of life crashing over.
She thinks her mind is made up but it's not. She pushes her hair behind her ear and looks down at the earth she stands upon. "We are One, " she says. She feels a sense of belonging never felt before.
Each breath she takes, each deep inhalation infuses her with divinity and aids the growth of the divine light within her. She feels incredible, powerful, spiritual, enchanted, and dynamic. Her soul so dynamic and her auraic shine so intoxicatingly gorgeous she feels she can take on the world.. but this time she's strong enough to win.
Silence... night pulls in and she rests. She slumbers deep in the depths of the mental realm. Her unconscious revealing truths, her dreams with their relevance for the whole of humanity. She sees herself in the desert; Queen of all she sees.
And at dawn she sets to work. A garden of extraordinary beauty, trees of awesome grace and presence, intoxicating lakes of water, purest clear. The most succulent fruit.
And on the 7th day she's done. Her work complete. The battle won. Proud, she rests. Her tears of past seem a lifetime ago. Her smile now radiates.
And finally... He appears. He bows down before her and kisses her feet. He runs his fingers through her hair and then looks her directly in the eye and says:
"Thou Art Goddess..."
