Secrets of Success

Understanding inspiration is more important than
Adhering to the rules of another generation's plan.
Assimilating the past is an important part of progress;
Without knowing history, we continue to regress.

But, when I question our ways, I continue being pointed
To historians, rather than to the new prophets anointed.
Do we really believe that Divinity hasn't "spoken"
To anyone since Jesus, Muhammed, or John Smith were god/men's tokens?

Has "God" been a misogynist since that beginning of time?
If so, to what plateaus should women attempt to climb?
I cannot see reasons for continuing to try following Christianity,
If from, the voices of wisdom, my presence will be free.

The religions have fought mothers' power to their own detriment;
They've destroyed all honor of authority, their disrespect was constant.
Aren't we tired of the swing of the pendulum from gods to goddesses?
Are we ready for the conversation that each faction may dread?

We all lose when we deny the strength or value of another,
We all have a place, be we father, mother, sister, or brother.
But each place is dependent on individual talents and grace
That makes us each a unique part of the whole human race. 

Let those who have only past ways and scriptures to adhere
Stop destroying the values that we now hold most dear.
The problem is that most don't reveal their failed experiments;
They only publish the successes that they are sent.

  1. I think God speaks to us all, in many ways. Primarily today thru His scripture and lives of the saints who are dedicated to the One great cause.

    But that aside, we are thinking of you and Richard and your loved ones. Of course out thought go to all who are there, along with another poet who lives North of there and a pastor who has been ordered to evacuate. You guys have our prayers and thoughts during the next few hours and days.

    I am hoping you are safe in Coker Creek, Tennessee.

    Wishing you only the best.
    Love from Maine.
