Pray, dance, sing
Sounds of magick
Believers parade around the colors of fire
Flames cascade into spirit images
Ancestral guidance calls forth for protection
A circle opens in ritual to bless the living
Tools of rite emanate from inanimate objects
Non-believers view hurt
Through misconception mimics evil
Believers pass down light and positivity
"The snake under those auspices gathers all who share the faith"
From Haiti, to the African plains, across the ocean to the Americas
Surviving hatred, slavery and freedom
Speaking their truth.
