The Moon Goddess

From 'Twin Paradox' chapter 4 of Death and Politics at the End of the World. This is part of a coming of age ceremony which the main character reexperiences and is original to this piece. 
“Luna reflects our own life cycles
 affects menstruation and ovulation
She is a symbol of life,
of choices,
of change
Some would purge her from the collective consciousness
would reject the cyclical nature
of life
of emotion
of her phases
They would like to think of her merely as rock to walk on
distant soil to explore
We reclaim you, Moon Mother
from the tyranny of the sterile
We honor you tonight, Ancient One
for connecting us to our deepest selves
and we welcome the life you symbolize for us.”
