You give me life and breath, a connection I embrace.
You fill me with passion through your words.
You teach me joy and pain, honour and discipline.
You care for me and wait while I seek knowledge.
You have taught me to overcome my fears,
embrace my anger and revel in laughter.
You guide me to rule my life, strengthen my character,
take pride in my tasks and to look deep within.
You have taught me to honour my ancestors and to rely on myself.
I understand now that silence and calmness are not signs of ignorance.
Strength, honour and loyalty are what makes us leaders.
I will not kneel before any god nor will I repent for any wrong doings.
I was born to be my best and to honour the gods and my ancestors.
I will spend my life questioning, reasoning and seeking.
To continue on my quest for knowledge, seek guidance when I stumble and
honour the Aesir and Vanir beyond the best of my abilities.
Hail the Gods and Goddesses
