In your emergent words I found the way,
Through kindness and our laughing play,
To reach deep inside and with faith renew
An Anima growth seen by just a few.

A shared journey to now shape the word
Was found in your eyes, a teacher spurred:
As Eve she emerged your Helen she grow
In Anima growth felt by just a few.
How can I know the true pain of you now,
Through speaking her words I learn how
To explore with my friend a new place to be
An Animus guide to help become free.
In speaking out now, free in the world,
We have found new ways to further unfurl.
In Virgin Mary’s gift Helen’s Troy is not to be.
With Animus guide a help, you are now free.
Your growth is now painful for you to accept
Through ancient memories you are more inept:
Let Byronic action help your bright smile stay
As Anima and Animus prefers a new play.
The journey continues as wisdom we seek.
Hermes found ways to share with the meek
That we are not perfect, it is Sophia’s way,
Our Anima and Animus requires a new play.
