Emancipator “Valhalla”

Have no fear
Consternation aside
It’s one hell of a ride
To embrace the unknown
With the grace and the pride
Of a lion outgrown each abrasion made known
As it roams the plains
Bravely at night
Take comfort in strangers
And open your heart
Even though it may be broken in parts
Trust in your gut
For you made it thus far
On the instincts of mystics
Sworn oath to regard
It’s not easy when queasy
Misleadingly hard
When we keep deep within every feeling disbarred
Thus disregard the reveal of true psalm
Hastily forsaking innate state of calm

Redefine range
In exchange for a lifetime of labour
Do so with fleet as you leap to the peak of the glacier
It’s high time to buy time for realigned sight line
Resign no design to rights wavered
For rear view is clear view
To all voyages passed
Sincere in regards
From the eye of the mast
In choppy waters
When course has been altered
We ought to outreach to afar
Breach the high tide
As waves break in our wake
Unmistakably awake
Hereby graced an innate state of calm

Elevate others of native incline
Tie their shoelaces to make safe the climb
Place greatest faith in the two-way divine
Set every grave consternation aside
Have no fear dear
It’s one hell of a ride
To embrace the unknown
Whereby day became night
With the grace and the frame
Of a famed lion pride
To reprise the reveal of true psalm
Hereby breathing innate state of calm

  1. I personally want to thank you for this one. It’s nothing short of a guiding hand through uncertainty. Thank God for my two Lions ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒŸ
    “Tie their shoelaces to make safe the climb”

    1. That was my favourite line to write. And I love that this resonated with you. Finding our tranquility is so important and I hoped to convey just that through this verse. You have a lion either side to help you to your own tranquil place. Always ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒŸ
