A Future of Light
Rorate caeli desuper, Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above et nubes pluant justum and let the clouds rain the just I am a woman, favored and chosen, disgraced no more but lifted high. Generations shall call me blessed that I did not bow to the fear of those who would see me fall. Generations shall call me blessed for I sing defiantly for she the ignored, for she the abused, for she the world names worthless. I sing for the generations of women blessed. You are favored. Defiantly sing through tears and fears, doubts and brokenness for a future of light.
