Divine Energy is Gender Free

There once was only a male face of divinity
And, for many, that's all there will ever be.
I believe all Divine Energy is gender free;
All Grace will abide where it was meant to be.

Christians believe that they are saved by grace,
Not believing this is given to the full human race.
Many believe only those who say their savior's name
Have the right to any of eternal life's claim.

There are also those who live by strict laws,
And the varieties in nature never give them pause.
I believe that we can tell who is blessed with The Spirit,
Not by their nation, or religion, or with whom they sit.

The Spirit shines true in a person's connecting eyes,
Even though we're taught how to hide behind a disguise.
It seems to me that most societies teach how to cover
The truth of who we are, so there will always be "the other."

I love spending time with the younger generation,
Who have little knowledge of the old stories of creation.
They seem to feel more comfortable in their own skins,
Seeing no inequality between women and men.

There is a culture of sharing, instead of competition;
Perhaps in my lifetime, equal rights will come to fruition.
I cannot and will not go back to seeing The Spirit as a him
When I so clearly see a spark of Divinity in all of "them."

Grateful for His Goodness

May I never take for granted a dry bed out of the rain,
Or the man who, when I've been away, welcomes me home again.
May I always be grateful for the wheels that transport me;
For, without transportation, I would certainly be less free.

May I continue to be grateful every time I buy a meal
That I am not in a position where I'm tempted to steal.
May I always be happy to hear about his day,
So he'll never lose his ability to turn his work to play

I know it may sound sacrilegious that I give credit to my man
For all the needs he fills for me as he steadfastly beside me stands
But I firmly believe that we must remember to thank any other
Who hears the call to nurture us, as if they were our loving mothers.

I am humbled that someone is willing to fully share with me
All that he worked to become, and all he'll ever be.
It seems the only that thing he's wanted from the start
Is that I, in exchange for security, offer a fully open heart.
