Come forth unabashed (from Shaman Psalm)

by James Broughton


Original Language English

Come forth unabashed
Come out unbuttoned
Bury belligerence
Resurrect frolic
Only through body can
you clasp the divine
Only through body can
you dance with the god
In every man's hand
the gift of compassion
In every man's hand
the beloved connection
Trust one another
or drown
