“Song of the Self” by Jennifer Adele

Today we begin our early spring theme, Inspiration.  We Humanistic and Naturalistic Pagans know how to reason critically.  But what role do intuition, inspiration, poetry, and art play in our Naturalistic Paganism?  Over the next six weeks, we will showcase examples of the poetic imagination flowing from the depths of the universe through the minds and hands of Naturalistic Pagans and friends.

“Song of the Self” by Jennifer Adele (c) 2009

I am deliriously happy
in my truest form.
I am reliable
when I give myself direction.
I care deeply
about all others.

I am the wounded healer.
I am phoenician.
I am spiritual.
I am beautiful.

I have driving ambitions
to improve life.
I am constantly in a state
of limitless creativity.
I am spontaneous
and authentic.

I am the wounded healer.
I am phoenician.
I am spiritual.
I am beautiful.

I am stronger than even
I could ever imagine.
I am intelligent
and charming and witty.
I am eclectic and ever changing
yet very decisive.

I am the wounded healer.
I am phoenician.
I am spiritual.
I am beautiful.

I am the Self.
