We are the Legacy of a Goddess

The flame took our shape
as the earth licked
our bare feet and the ground
sweat secrets only we
were given the key to;

the cipher required
a bulbous shape
and curves that men
feared, conquered
by only a fellow form
that could beget life.

We were given a spell
song, a secret to
braid through generations,
a sacred guarantee:
our reach will be infinite.
