Forged Through The Fire

  
Forged through the fire, petitioned he
Held within heart be liberation's decree
Burn - burn - burn - flame rise anew
The haunts of the past given their due
Consumed by truth ever so real
Be those daunting echoes of oppression n'er conceal
Rise from the ash of memories of time and place
THE WAY calls and set are new markers of grace.

Rose Marie Raccioppi
Poet Laureate
Orangetown, New York


Inspired by the willingness of a student to confront emotional wounds 
and the knowing that only he is the true minister of SELF proclaimed.

Working with school age students and adult students of life continues to light the flames of faith and to hold witness to the ever rising Phoenix... this the ever present Spirit alight with TRUTH. Be it expressions of works, of gestures kind, of words that echo empathy, understanding, regard, accord, be it of a listening ear, be it of caring hearts reaching anew, be it blessings shared... this the pulse of my offerings... Forged Through The Fire.
