Divine Destroyer

*Author's note:  What you are about to read could be considered explicit in nature.  My hope is that it stirs several emotions within you.  I will put this to music at some point, but for now I want to share it with the world.  For more information on the Hindu goddess Kali you may find some here.*




Before light, there was darkness.  NASA estimates that 70% of the Universe is made of dark energy.  25% is dark matter which leaves only 5% of the Universe in the visible spectrum.  With so much darkness surrounding us, it is no surprise that our minds are cast in shadow.



Kali Ma_________ you bless us with life.
From your womb, we enter into light.
Show us your mercy, bless us with your kindness.
Oh Black Mother, show us the way.


Always leading, never demanding.  Most compassionate Mother to us al.
You feed us from your breast, hold us in your arms.  You pick us up when we fall.


But that is not the side of you that we choose to see.
When our life is shit, we blame it all on you.


Kali_________ destroy the world.
Break down these walls that keep me in misery.
Devastate these perceptions that I hold so dear.
Tear apart these chains that keep me from being free!


Even the idea of freedom is so absurd, especially in the U.S. of fucking A.  Where children are born warm, pink, sucking on their mamma’s tities and without a god damn care in the world.  So comfortable we have to make up our own illnesses to feel miserable.  I mean, obesity?!  What kind of illness is that?  Get up off your fat ass and eat a vegetable!  ADHD?  Perhaps if you took your kid outside and showed him something in the natural world instead of sitting him down in front of the Wiggles to get him out of your hair he might not throw your fucking cufflinks down the toilet.  Then again…. I would.


Kali_________ destroy the world.
Break down these walls that keep me in misery.
Devastate these perceptions that I hold so dear.
Tear apart these chains that keep me from being free.


Who the hell do you think you are judging me?  Why do you give a flying fuck that I like to walk around the giant cancerous mass of consumerism that is Costco wearing a wrap around skirt?  So what if I like eyeliner because it makes my eyes pop?  I may not be straight but I’m not gay either.  I don’t need to slap a label on my chest so you know what to think.  If you don’t want to get to know who I am beneath this exterior, I’m ok with that.  I’ll just put a label on that says, “Hello, My name is Pipe the Fuck Down!”


Kali_________ destroy the world.
Break down these walls that keep us in misery.
Devastate these perceptions that we hold so dear.
Tear apart these chains that keep us from being free.


You have a brain, so use it.  Think for yourself.  It’s ok to be afraid.  Sorrow can be glorious.  I cannot see what lies ahead for you or me, but if life has taught me anything thus far, I know it will be amazing.  Nothing ever happens the way we anticipate.  We need to let go of our expectations.  Let go of the ropes with which we bind ourselves so tightly.  Let go of these perceptions to which we cling to so blindly.  Let go of anger, hate, betrayal.  The lies, the judgement, the ignorance, the pain.  The burden we carry from the abuse and neglect we have suffered.  It is time to let it all go.  Let go of all this and we will find ourselves empty.  An empty vessel ready to be filled.


Kali Ma________ destroy our pain.
Release us from our suffering.
Empty our cup, then fill it up.
We are no longer afraid.


A wise being talked about the seeds that are sown within us.  We have the ability to water the seeds of others.  Do you choose to water the seeds of anger and hatred or do you water those of love and compassion?


Kali Ma________ destroy the world.
It is time for new life and rebirth.
Out of the darkness dawns a new day.


Kali Ma, show us the way.
