to the music

to the music

we give thanks for the privilege

for choosing us, for our calling

we give thanks for the task bestowed upon us

for allowing us to call, to respond and to choose our calling

 

we are humbled by the magnitude of our task

and by the lineage in which we are located

 

we give thanks to those who have come before

those who have forged the way

that we might walk their paths

work and walk further along

 

we are humbled by the magnitude of our task

and the work we have been called to do in the present

 

as

social

political

cultural

and spiritual

workers

 

as I understand our task

it is to heal this hurting world

console broken souls

give life to those rendered lifeless

to inspire and to incite

to stoke the fires

relight dying embers

remind and restore sight :: true sight

to unveil the world

be in and act in the world

to study, learn, craft and speak true words

to provoke, induce and encourage

encounter(s with) the self

to insist on love

and to always insist on the importance of revolution

[of self and/in the world]

 

we give thanks to the music

the ancient spirits that move through us, the vessels

thank you for choosing us

we move forward with the light

toward the light

fighting always for the light

 

rooted in the past: listening

acting decisively in the present: playing

writing hopefully the future: building and imagining
