“Swords in My Hands” War paths fade when she says Play Misty for Me It’s so very easy hold two swords drop the Ball and glass slippers The smile is full freedom he says, do it again Victory dance and mean it Taken in this moment one sword cuts the zumanity ropes some strange romance; he says, do it again I’ll watch you win begin Victory dance begin she is calling It in, ALL in, by Her Self LIFE body in full flight against Blue Sky (LadyLabyrinth / 2021) "Take to The Sky", Tori Amos https://youtu.be/__i-CccPdmk “This house is like Russia, with eyes cold and gray. You got me movin' in a circle. I dyed my hair red today. I just want a little passion to hold me in the dark. I know I've got some magic buried, buried deep in my heart, yeah…. But my priest says, You aint saving no souls… My father says, "You ain't making any money." My doctor says, "You just took it to the limit. And here I stand, with this sword in my hand... You can say it one more time What you don't like Let me hear it one more time Then have a seat while I take to the sky, take to the sky... ... This house is like Russia with eyes cold and gray" LYRICS/ “Take to the Sky”, Tori Amos https://genius.com/Tori-amos-take-to-the-sky-russia-lyrics

"Woman is the creator of the universe, the universe is her form; woman is the foundation of the world, she is the true form of the body. In woman is the form of all things, of all that lives and moves in the world. There is no jewel rarer than woman, no condition superior to that of a woman."

"The sword symbolizes power, protection, authority, strength, and courage; metaphysically, it represents discrimination and the penetrating power of the intellect. The sword is phallic, with the sheath being yonic. It is a symbol of knighthood and chivalry. The flaming sword of the Christian ethos seperates man from Eden.

Many swords have magical properties and are given to heroes for the advancement of justice; Excalibur was given to Arthur by the lady of the lake, The Greek gods gave Perseus a sword that could cleave stone to defeat Medusa."
