Maa Kali is the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment or shakti. She is the fierce aspect of the goddess Durga (Parvati). The name Kali comes from kāla, which means black, time, death, lord of death: Shiva. Since Shiva is called Kāla— the eternal time — the name of Kālī, his consort, also means "Time" or "Death" (as in "time has come"). Hence, Kāli is the Goddess of Time, Change, Power, and Destruction. Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of the annihilation of evil forces still has some influence.

Kali. Goddess. Open me up. Break me apart. Gently at first. Whisper love to me as you Tear me limb from limb. Destroy my pretty paradigms Shatter my shoddy illusions Rip my seams asunder Tear the veil before my eyes. I want to see with your vision My eyes have been blinded to the divine They only see cars, buildings, and smog Faces caked in makeup Bodies wrapped in designer clothing Give me new sight to see Colors Energy Spirit. Give me your breath that I might Breathe life into the world Revive the dying Inspire the languishing soul-dead that roam the streets. Kiss my feet to dance upon the ashes of the dead Sing them into new life Give me your courage To walk among the ashes of my Narrow dreams Taking the dust and shaping it Into charcoal I smudge my spirit with the black remnants of who I used to be I laugh Nothing is freer than drawing with your bones Failure does not exist When you know the freedom Of Dying
