She is called Quan Yin,
She is called Tara,
She is called Mary,
Hers are the believing arms wrapped around a raped teenager
Hers is the cool night blessing a disturbed mind
Hers is the today no of the father who turns down a beer
Hers is the mercy of the last breath
Hers is the forgiveness in a lover’s heart
She births the hope in every soul.
We are She.
We are One.
