Renu Rakheja a.k.a Tranquil Ocean


AN INVOCATION


You have lain too long
Your desires spliced for centuries
Your lips locked in a grimace
Your life spent in love penury
Your laughter suppressed
Your hands calloused
Your body bruised
Your yoni invaded
You let them come and scavenge your deep
You let them spill their dirt and heap
You let them come and snatch away your sleep
You let them plunder yet you dont weep

The time has come
Let the new seed open, let it shine
Rise from the ashes
Let the glass tremble with new wine
Let the shackles be broken free
Let a thundering revolution brew
Between your breasts
Wage a fight for a life anew
From centuries of shame
From eons of pain
You Rise, You Rise, You Rise

O Love! thou makest all things even
