She who stings the unjust
and who heals the unjustly stung,
She who upholds ma’at
with Her venom and Her protection.
that I and mine were spared the poison,
that the inevitable blow was as gentle as could be,
that our bated breath may be released
as a sigh and not a shudder.
that my tears are of relief
and not further pain,
that we may come together
instead of come apart.
