Batlecry – Angel Haze
Content note: child sexual abuse.
This song is the most powerful description of Judgement that I’ve ever heard. Angel Haze talks about facing up to who she is, to all of the harrowing experiences she’s been through, to who she is now as a whole, damaged, incredible grown person who has looked it all in the eye, accepted herself and risen above it all.
Cause it’s easy to keep pretending that there’s nothing wrong
But it’s harder to keep your head up and be fucking strong
I woke up one Sunday morning, stopped believing in Jesus
Stopped believing in churches, I stopped believing in preachers
I realized I was a teacher, not just one of the heathens
I’m born to destroy the fallacies, start creating believers
Start creating the leaders, tell ’em who they should follow
Nobody but themselves, especially if they hollow
Especially when they empty and death reserves for fulfillment
You the only person alive who holds the key to your healin’
So you take it and you run with it
And keep going even when your sun’s hidden
Because the time we spent in darkness when the rain come
Is where we often find the light soon as the pain’s done.

I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
