Hecate, Goddess of darkness,
Queen of the night.
Whose powers and presence,
Abound out of sight.
Why do we so fear the blackness?
For ‘tis the other half of reality.
The opposing force to light,
And to balance both together means longevity
Of the meaning of life and being.
Can we grasp this concept
Of being; not afraid to go forward?
And combine both dark and light, and accept
That the queen of the dark dimension,
Does not epitomise evil or fear,
But balance and joy absolute, with no contention.
No anger to deal with either further or near.
No fear but to banish unto
The Universe, to recycle and mingle,
On the levels and spirals of all that is true.
And combining the balance of darkness and light
