And then she came
The Angel of the seven skies,
Through the eyes of blue
She summoned the tales of truth and lies.
What you seek, she asked
Wealth or wisdom?
Comradeship of the Cosmic,
Or the throne of the dark kingdom?
Time stood still…
In the momentous of the Sun, Earth and Moon
Commenced, thus, the order of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water
And not a moment too soon.
The secret lies within you, she said
The kingdom of Heaven and Hell,
Choose wisely, she warned
And life will be for yours to tell.
At the mountain top, lies the temple of the flesh
Right beneath the sacred of the holy,
Realize, she enlightened, realize, and only then
The heavens will open up soul-wholly.
Believe, she prophesized,
And you’ll master the water that no one sees through,
From the bondage of mist and dust
Will rise the empire of the one very true.
Assemble your army on every front
Resurrect the magic immortal,
Govern your realm, she cherished, steadfast and steady
And you’ll journey through the divine portal.
And then I closed my eyes
As the warmth of her light serene embraced me,
Always and forever and I’ll remember…..
From the tower of sublime, my cosmic will set me free.
