Upon her pedestal she stood; a goddess,
sacred in the eyes of all who paid homage
to her. It was a long string of such women
who could exorcise all demons that would visit
in the night. The indigenous savages would halt
their elaborated rituals; laying down
their flags with all intention of lifting her
to the summit for all to honor and praise her.
The name given spoke of her significance.
They called her: Mother!
