Maiden Menarchy Mantra

(Recite in a quiet space)

butterfly

I am maiden
Gem and jewel laden
Between my legs
Lay the secrets
Not so secret
I am what they must tell
I am the bell
I am hell
I am heaven
I am the cling
The ding of all that is divine
I am the dong
I am the song
That makes men cry
That makes men high
That makes men fly
I am the by and the by
I am the blood
I am the mud
I am the everlasting life force
The red cosmick crud
I am the magic
I am the butterfly
I am the bee
I am menarche
I am free
It’s all in me
I am the magic
I am the butterfly
I am the bee
I am menarche
I am free
It’s all in me
