Dark Mother Kali Ma,
Thank you for rocking me and my foundations, when my soul cried for a way out.
Thank you for stubbornly burning down the tower when I did not choose to walk out myself.
Thank you for continuing to rip away all of the layers of protection so I have no choice but stand naked as I am.
Thank you for sending in wave after wave so that I know with conviction I can ride whatever comes my way.
Thank you for serving up those who did not see me so that I was forced to see myself.
Thank you for inviting in the haters so that I could learn to love myself.
Thank you for sending those who would never understand me so that I was forced to know and trust myself.
Thank you for delivering ones who overlook me so I can see how much I have to share.
Thank you for continuing to catch me off guard so I can see all of the ways I attempt to protect myself from life.
Thank you for loving so ferociously no matter how much I screamed and kicked.
Thank you for your relentless compassion and for doing it all while never expecting thank you in return.
