Reignite

Hope can drown lost in thunderous sound
Fear can claim what little faith remains

But I carry strength from souls now gone
They won’t let me give in…

I will never surrender
We’ll free the Earth and sky
Crush my heart into embers
And I will reignite…
I will reignite

Death will take those who fight alone
But united we can break a fate once set in stone

Just hold the line until the end
Cause we will give them hell…

I will never surrender
We’ll free the Earth and sky
Crush my heart into embers
And I will reignite…
I will reignite.

“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”
-W.B. Yeats

It’s been just a bit over a year since I shared Yeats’ The Stolen Child, (Gems 4.70) but this mythical creatures week wouldn’t be the same without it.  It was that same day that I created the page, Missing BenjaminContinue reading

The Coin of Fear and Love

I found three of the quotes in this series about love and fear among seven others on this site:  10 Quotes about Love and Fear.

Quote 1 is by Marianne Williamson, a woman who has inspired me and millions of others over the years.  If you don’t know who she is, she’s got a nifty site and a newsletter you can sign up for here:  Marianne.com

Quote 2 is by Oprah Winfrey, another inspiring and amazing woman.  Her site is Oprah.com — it’s a bit hard to load on slower computers because it contains a lot of footage from her TV show, but well worth the wait.  My favorite video series is “Super Soul Sunday.”

The third quote is from the New Testament book “1 John.”  I wanted to credit the exact author of that letter, but I learned today reading after this interesting article that the authorship of 1 John has never been determined.  Experts aren’t even sure that the author of the letters  2 John and 3 John (known as “The Elder”) is the same author as the first.  Since the Bible is one of my favorite books of study, I found this fascinating.

The last quote is actually two quotes by C.S. Lewis, author of Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters, Letters to Malcolm, The Problem of Pain and many others.  His romance with American Joy Davidman became the basis of beautiful book by Brian Selby which became an equally beautiful movie starring Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger, Shadowlands.   Since i didn’t find a quote by Lewis that contained both words in this month’s theme (“love” and “fear”) I combined one of each.   One of my favorite quotes by C.S. Lewis is something he said to Joy one day in Shadowlands,  not long after he discovered she was sick:

“Pain is the price we will pay – then – for the love we have — nowThat’s’ the deal.”

We make this deal every time we love.
