Because…

by Paula Hifner

[WVox Sponsor]

Age Group: Adult



Because I am short, and round, and old,
Because I am quiet, not outright bold,
Because I have had my share of pains,
Because I am lacking in high worldly gains.

To you I fell short, my style you found lacking,
You made up your mind, then sent me off packing,
I suffer you not, and have nothing to say,
I'm not the one, who let one slip away.

My ancestral beginnings were humble at best,
They had their gifts, held close to their chest,
Not let out in public or spoken out loud,
But kept deep inside, away from the crowd.

My journey continues, I’ve walked with a cane,
Sweet medical Magick, I’m dancing again.
Of all of the things I have learned on the way,
It's yourself that counts, not what others say.

True wisdom and Blessings are deep within,
You just open up and let Spirit begin,
Though experts will "best" you where ever you go,
You never stop learning, there's so much to know.

Because I can't stop, this thing that's inside,
Because I'm a Being where Spirit Resides,
A virtual fountain through which It must flow,
The Universe tells me which way to go.

Without all the fashion, or pageantry thrown,
Seeking knowledge and wisdom where ever I’m shown,
I am finding my own way, how “I” should be,
I am one with the Universe, I am She.
