She Is Dangerous

She is dangerous
Daring every devil in her way
to make Love known

She is dangerous
She is often afraid
but
she is more afraid of not doing right

She is dangerous
She is often intimidated by the darkness
She fights with light
When she is intimidated she runs away
into the darkness she most fears
She does not wish it away

Into the danger
There she crumbles on the floor of humility
Often humiliated
Vulnerability becomes home
Where intimidation makes way for intimacy
There she yields her fears
Until Love finds her again
On that floor of humility
Where the prideful darkness is resisted
Where faith finds a friend to uphold
Where hope arises out of utter defeat

In the presence of darkness
a feast is provided
She eats love
endlessly
She feasts on love
and
Love makes her dangerous

  • “In the presence of darkness a feast is provided.” This is a powerful image of resurrection and challenges me to be “more afraid of not doing right.” Isn’t this really how anyone finds the grace to glorify God?

    • Siki Dlanga

      I love how you saw resurrection and grace in this! love it! Thank you Michele.

  • Siki, you tie it all together here for me: Love makes her dangerous.

    Women who Love can be dangerous, because of the Love we feast on. We can stand in it, feast on it and share it. That Love surely makes us dangerous.

    So powerful, friend.
