You’ve traveled a long way to get here dear friends,
But you have quite a journey before you reach the end.
Listen close and you’ll know what you should do
With a little bit of luck you might make it through.
Unshackle your hearts – toss your troubles behind,
But look out! It’s Life’s intention to play with your mind!
Hold on to your hopes , get over your fears,
Remember your loves and the lessons of tears.
For all those experiences she’ll add to her mix
With a sprinkle of sparkle she’ll unveil her tricks.
Your wishful intentions are gathered so dear,
But just how they’ll manifest is never quite clear.
Concocting her potion of unusual stories,
Some will be sad and some will share glories,
You might call Life mad and a bit frivolous,
For the magical cauldrons are bubbling with bliss!
Tales of, sorcery, mystery, debauch’ry, and sin
All kinds of commotion are churning within.
Our passions , our poisons and all our delusions
The glitter of crystal and such pretty illusions
The sweat of slaves – the blood of soldiers,
Ashes of ancestors, and yes, the liquids of lovers
All of it now goes into Life’s brew
From out of the old, She’ll make something new.
This ancient science is more of an art
So we’ll give it our all with spirit and heart
Forget everything ever that you have been told
We’re here to transform much more than lead into gold.
Who knows how long our world will keep turning,
Yet nothing can change unless the fires are burning.
Despite human intellect – we must confess
The battles outside reflect our inside mess.
With so many dogmas locked in contention
The truth is beyond our own comprehension.
Everything can be right or everything made wrong
And the process for curing is both delicate and long.
Still we seek to find belief in something quite other,
So tonight we’ll place our faith in the hands of our mother…Earth
And hope to learn at last how to be good to each other.
