Upon witnessing
wild
do you attempt to tame it
whip
break
mame it
or do you let it be
free

Can you appreciate without
consuming
can you love without
holding
restricting
controlling
or have you given away your
power

What are the ways you are
blessing
how are you beautifying
pain
tragedy
“reality”
or do you give up grace for
judgement

Who are you when no one
cares
who aren’t you that you try
to be
to hate
to heal
will you make a difference or
difficulties

On another plane
noticing miracles
of’t taken for not
as we rise on air
We could plummet
things may go wrong
sending us spiraling
this could be my tomb
So I think of death
of what might pass
how I’d respond
to my last moments
I decide that I’d pray
not to be saved
but in sincere thanks
surrendering in peace
So if I die today
do not cry for me
now that I was happy
counting every blessing
No, if I die today
it won’t be a waste
celebrate my life
let my death be great

I was taught to fear
the other

never knowing
it was always myself

I hated “them” for things
I remembered

about myself
things only “I” was guilty of

Yet, it was through others’
forgiving embrace

I discovered
how forgiveness heals

Turning their love inward
accepting myself

breaking free
releasing self-judgements

In these ways, I am saved
by others

once judged
by my own denied insecurities

So yes, I am healing me
not selfishly

but selflessly
knowing I must to love All

I love this day! It’s considered quite lucky in my family too. I’m actually going gambling with my grandma, aunt and uncle to celebrate today because we consider it THAT lucky.

My grandfather was born the 13th of March and subsequently loved the number. All of us have followed suit.

I actually have a 13 tattooed on my left arm. Though, the meaning behind it had admittedly evolved past grandpa’s favorite number for me.

Since reclaiming my pagan roots, I have begun to learn so much more about the power of 13. It is highly feminine and also associated with the lunar calendar, with there being 13 lunar cycles each solar year.

Equally, Friday has been regarded as feminine for mellinia, associated with goddesses like Venus and Freya. Combined, Friday the 13th is a powerful day for the feminine, and from what I’ve gathered over the past few years, that’s precisely why its been considered subversive or unlucky for so long now too. Is it really that surprising though, given that theme for the majority of written history?

I hope that this little post gives you something to think about today and a few reasons to reclaim Friday the 13th for yourself again too. For now, I’m off to win big! Blessed be!
