Give Way to the Way

To be reborn anew, I must remove the old.
I remove fear of what I do not understand.
I remove vanity and unnecessary self-importance.
I remove labels for the One who cannot be named.
Stripped to nothing to become one with everything,
I humble myself through obedience.
Obedience is to give way to the way.
The way of purity of purpose,
to sanctify the gift given to me.
As a woman
As a mother
As a friend
As a child
As a creator
As a bride
I am transformed.
May my soul join together with all that is
And release what is not.
Let my mind body and soul be cleansed
by the holiness of the Mikvah
