No. 241: It is not a musician's job...

It is not a musician's job
(the ones you think can "discover you")
to care about your soul.

Do not be fooled 
into baring Voice
to a singer
who cares not--
and "only sings"--
for you may find your instrument
bloody and bruised 
on an altar
built of ignorance
to a deity unseen.

And do not venture to sing 
for a "non-singer"
who cannot dream
and places limits
on Possibility
before she's ever

Sing, rather, as if Voice is equal to Your Soul
and Both
having equal value
deserving equal respect
and praise--
the heat of a refiner's fire
to mold the space
for grace--
and the understanding
to wield power that,
when fully embraced,
leads only to and from
where every Voice is safe.

For I cannot sing
unless I believe every Voice is free.
It is just 
about me...

And knowing this about me, I know it about YOU...
and all those false deities
those beater-uppers and "voiceless" ones
fade into the bright light
of Truth:

WE. SING. Yes, that is true.  Voice is Me.  Voice IS You.

THIS is Life.  THIS is Love.  THIS is Opera Organically.
