United we stand, divided we fall,
Who is the fairest of them all?
If I were a God looking down on my flock,
I would want to go hide under a rock.
If I were a devil seeing what I see,
I would be rubbing my hands and smiling with glee.
A poison apple has been thrown on the land,
A deep initiation is what's at hand.
This apple gets passed from pillar to post,
But what is the poison that kills the host?
It spreads like a virus over land and sea,
No one is immune, not even me.
How can an apple cause so much strife?
It has created chaos in everyone's life.
So they create a vaccine to counter the poison,
But that only creates more division.
The people are turned against one and other,
This infuriates The Greatest of Mother's.
Her Earth quakes, her volcanoes blow,
Her forests burn and her rivers overflow.
Her anger rages, she's as fierce as can be,
But still her children are unable to see.
The forces of darkness are having their way,
Manipulating the masses is child's play.
This one little apple, with one bitter bite,
Creates so much fear her children start to fight.
The forces of good and evil are nothing new,
They live within me and they live within you.
The veils have been lifted and the truth is revealed,
The darkness within us has to be healed.
We can no longer hide behind the light,
Our own inner division is creating this fight.
How can we turn against one and other?
Aren't we family, sister and brother?
This inner plight of separation,
has poisoned the children creating devastation.
We are not fairing well in this initiation.
It's sad but it's true, we are failing this mission,
We have lost our way in all the confusion.
But if we could band together we can turn this around,
We can spit that poison out on the ground.
We can heal our wounds and end the fights,
The darkness disappears when you turn on the light.
The poison in the apple is so very clear,
The poison in the apple is our very own fear.
And fear my friends, is the opposite of Love,
So take hold of your faith and Rise Above!
