When Mama Mary Loves You

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle,
be our protection against the malice and snares
of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray;
and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the
power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.

Lady Madonna

I had a vision of a Madonna sitting under
a jacaranda, on her basket turned over

Her fruit laid before her, as I peered,
through a faux bamboo window

Hung on a wall. She called for me
and I came frustrated, angry, wanting more.

She had nothing more to give.
As the sun set I was humbled

By her sincerity, there was no wall
She listened intently to every word.

Psalm 25 in JML Prose

In a white sterile room…
its full of chatter blistering of doom.
My Sire stands over me and we converse about the noise.
Their words I can’t grasp. — I just nod… confused.

My head screams, “DO NOT SHAME ME!”
My Sire stands guard. To take the mocking.
They know not what they do.

Guided by the world are the fools.

My Sire stands over me… providing light in the dark night.
My Sire stands over me… taming the provoked lions.
My Sire stands over me… guiding my hands to fight daemons.

In need. My Sire sends my heart’s desire.
Desperate and tired. My Sire gives the hope I require.
Storm, flood and tornado. My Sire never leaves my side.

Snatched in the early morning hours by earthly powers… My Sire fills my soul.

He is loud and silent.
He is visible and unseen.
He is my rock, my faith, my love, my dream.

And lost in the world, I am found steady in Him.

I see through Him.
I know through Him.
I hear through Him.
I feel through Him.
I live through Him.

The mocking has ended.
And My Sire stands over me.

When Mama Mary Loves You

I've seen the Madonna
Cloaked in Radiant White

I've chased Her Rainbows as if
She had a commit tail taking flight

She even showed me a pot of Gold
And I laughed and laughed and laughed

So, when you decide anywhere
Except here will do...

Mama Mary is waiting for You.
