Queer Spirit Poem - Shokti

CALL TO THE WITCH IN EVERY QUEER
COME OUT OF THE CLOSET AND MOVE BEYOND FEAR
THE AQUARIAN AGE IS HERE
AND THIS SUMMER IN THE COUNTRYSIDE NOT FAR FROM YOU
A DREAM OF QUEER SPIRIT IS COMING TRUE

Call to the shaman in every gay barman
to the abbot in every faggot
to the priestess in every lesbian
the deity in every dyke and the radical in every faerie

We've long forgotten who we are
denied, destroyed, divided, derided
but our sister-brothers from afar
the TWO- SPIRITS of America are remembering
WHO THEY ARE

And what they are
we were once too
nature's priests, magicians and servants
whom the worshippers of the crucified Christ
persecuted
unable or unwilling to see
the Christ-child within our gaiety.

It's the time of remembering re-honouring,
respecting WHO WE ARE
Religion struggles or refuses to accept us
but it matters not, for we serve not their jealous god
our devotion belongs to a spirit much older
the one religion set out to subjugate and suppress
we are the magical children of the MOTHER DIVINE
and she's on her way back, so this is our time...
... to remember...
that QUEER SPIRIT flows through our souls
and we were born this way because
we were born to be WHOLE

it's time for the queer peoples of planet earth
