Viking warriors were known for their ferocity in battle; Men and women fighting alongside each other for themselves, for each other, for greater ideals beyond the two. Odin, ruler of Asgard, presided over Valhalla where fallen warriors would be reborn to revel in a life of feasting and fighting. His queen Freya ruled over Folkvanir, the “Field of the People”. She brought magic to the Norse, possessed captivating beauty as well as the ability to shapeshift, embodied free sexual expression, associated with 8 runes attached to universal concepts of the “Futhark”, and brought half of the fallen to live in her kingdom where she rode around on a chariot pulled by two magic cats. You can decide for yourself which afterlife you'd prefer to live in.
Oh mother of mercy, answer to my prayers
Surrender your wisdom, I recall to never
Move from my seat of your Raison d'etre
In all that was lost when life was unfair
Returns "Hush now my child, now don't you dare"
"Forget that I love you, or the gifts that you bear"
"It is I who bestow, I who sew up your tears"
"Clay in your hands, you'll find deliverance there"
