Lyrics: I Am Divine


One of my favorite things about being a part of this album is the gift it's been to my kids. How many parents are lucky enough to put their philosophies and life lessons to music that their kids will totally sing along to? Seriously.

The other day I found a note my oldest daughter had written for a friend. She was encouraging the friend to disregard some bullies at school, telling her how awesome she was (in proper pre-teen lingo of course). I read along (yes, snoopy mom) and eventually found the lyrics to I am Divine that she had memorized.

I always think of Stefanie, my sister, when I remember writing this song. Okay, I have reason to think about her in almost every song on this album, (now that the memories of her proof reading each one as I wrote them are treasure chest preserved). The song wasn't about her, but for some reason it was for her, fueled by some kind of desire to explain something I can't explain. Back when it was just a page in a binder, she reviewed it and said this was one of her favorites. This and a song that's shelved for now called "Coming Home".



I AM DIVINE
Tanya Hanamaikai and Stephanie Boyd

Verse
I quickly pass them in the hall
They laugh behind my back
Their bruising words they throw like stones
To make me fall
And they think I should be afraid
But they don't hear me pray
The quiet whispers light a flame
To keep me strong

Chorus
I can hold my head up high
He knows my name, He knows my light
They can't steal this peace I have inside
I am part of His design
He made my world, He made my life
I am His, and I am meant to shine
I am divine.

Verse
Spacious buldings peering down
Casting shadows on my way
Trying to blind me from 
What life is all about
But they don't see the light inside
Burning in my eyes
A fire guiding through the lies 
That keep me strong

Chorus

Bridge
Flood the night with rain
My fire keeps burning on
Bowing to now storm or shame
When I'm on my knees
His power shelters me.
Chorus

  1. Well the apple doesn't fall far from the tree does it? What a wonderful daughter you have! It's obvious why she is such a great friend. And have I seen these other "shelved" lyrics? I want to read them!

Friday Figment: NAPPING NONSENSE

Sleepy baby panda naps on a dolphin and drools into the sea. The dolphin has tied to the bear's tail rosy red ribbons that float on the waves. At the shore, sandcastles wash away with the tide. Sleepy baby panda rolls through their gates.
Stop snoring, Panda. The salt from the sea is drying stiff and gritty in your hair. Your paws will feel sticky! You'll smell like fish dried on the beach. The dolphin has long slipped back into the dawn-lit water. Wake up, Panda, and be on your way.

Friday Figment: FINLESS FISH

I found a finless fish…well, fishtailing, I guess, along the bottom of my pond.
I asked him what he was doing in there (cause I was planning to drain that pond and set up a trampoline instead, though I didn’t tell him that).
He said, “I’m living; what does it look like I’m doing?”
“Can’t you live somewhere else?”
He didn’t answer.
“Where are your fins?”
“Really? You’re going to hint that I should leave then ask a rude question like that?”
“Sorry.”
I kicked the gravel, asked if he needed something to eat, but he silently slithered along.
When I checked on him before bed, the pond was empty.

Friday Figment: ANTSY ABANDON

The ant asked the caterpillar, "What are you doing?"

"Building my chrysalis," the caterpillar answered.

After a grunt the ant said, "Butterflies don't eat leaves, and I love leaves, especially rose ones, and man, I'd never give that up for anything."

The caterpillar had been working for hours and talk of leaves, rose leaves especially, made her stomach growl even as she defended the butterflies, explaining how they get to soar across the world on their beautiful wings.

"I hope mine are blue," she said.

"But the slow way you walk is so cute," the ant said, "I like you the way you are," and after an hour or two of that talk, the caterpillar left her chrysalis and feasted on rose leaves with the ant.

A week passed, and the caterpillar whispered, "I think I'm sick."

"Don't worry," the ant said, "I won't leave you," and the caterpillar was comforted as she fell into her final sleep…
