With the power to penetrate
the mystic guise and orchestrate
each mortal decision and consequence
I’d be a god you despise.
But with peace to liberate
all whose acts incarcerate
forgiveness and empathy deep within.
I’d show you how to relax.
And with joy to activate
the spirit’s lust to luminate
the dubious shadow on every face.
I’d be the knowledge you trust.
Boundless love to incarnate
with no intent to violate
respect for your license to co-create
rises on wings of consent.
