Stairway to Heaven ~ Led Zeppelin... ""...How everything still turns to gold..."

Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

As I listen, the last lines become known deeply... an intent of identity... ".

"...And as we wind on down the road 
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show 

How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
And she's buying the stairway to heaven."

Songwriters: Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

The Dawning Light

the scars of abuse upon this mind
the echoes of taunts within this heart
the shadows dark upon this soul
momentary be their reign
momentary be I their prisoner
for within lies the power of resolve
for within lies the light of the Omnipresence 

for within lies the liberation of spirit
the scars of abuse dissolve into understanding 
the echoes of taunts resound with compassion 
the shadows dark ascend to the dawning light 
and I in the Willful Presence of BEING.
