Is something wrong with me?

Because I am the one.

The one men come to when they want a slice of heaven

When it’s time to let go of it all

When they want to feed their bones with joy

They always come

They always take part of me

But.

They never stay.

What is wrong with me?

Anike.

You see, you have precious stones and light inside you, some days you give emerald, some days ruby. Some days light that can last a town for years.

There is an immediate thirst at the sight of your being, the craving of what you have to offer. There is so much power living inside you.

So, these men. they come, they come to have a taste.

Anike, you should know that the best of them all is not deserving of you. So next time when they come to take, you refuse.

Let them till the soil and say their prayers before they are allowed into your holy place.
