Oh, My Children

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
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.
