Soteira: The Song

A while ago I wrote a poem as part of a devotional month of work undertaken by many devotees of Hekate. Titled Soteira, I always intended to turn it into a song, however the poetic structure didn’t quite fit with the music that came to me, so it’s had a bit of a rewrite. Musical version to follow shortly!

Mirror to my soul

Your twin lights guide me

When I can’t decide

Which path is right

Guardian of my goals

Each step excites me

Leaping in the dark

The joy of night

Cosmic world soul

Heart of the universe…

The thought and the word

The void and the atom

The step and the leap

The tears and the joy.

The spark of the seeker inside my soul;

The spark of the seeker inside.

Listening to your voice

Each time it teaches

Stretching from the stars

To touch my mind

Grasping for hand

My spirit reaches

Heart is in my mouth

Each time I find

Voice of heaven

Earth, sea and sky…

The thought and the word

The void and the atom

The step and the leap

The tears and the joy.

The spark of the seeker inside my soul;

The spark of the seeker inside.

Wound in the web

Tiny lights in the dark

Compassion and kindness

We make our mark

Give me the courage

Oh give me the strength

To rise and strike a spark

Cosmic world soul

Heart of the universe…

The thought and the word

The void and the atom

The step and the leap

The tears and the joy.

The spark of the seeker inside my soul;

The spark of the seeker inside.

Mind heart and mouth

And tears on my brow

You’re pulling me onwards

You’re giving me hope

The spark of the seeker inside my soul;

The spark of the seeker inside.
