What if we were more than human?
With powers beyond our reckoning
Able to create and call into existence
In ways more than we realize
Human; gods nonetheless
What if we were gods of wisdom?
Unlocking our powers with each challenge
Honing our trades through reading and thoughts
Deciphering loads of innumerable knowledge
Stored up since before life and time
What if we were gods of life?
Giving life through deeds great and small
The little kindness, love and forgotten virtues
And through great breakthroughs
Of science and art explorations
What if we were gods of love?
Personifying our powers each day
Living to embrace rather than push away
To build bridges rather than walls
Shining our light without schisms
What if we were gods of peace?
Forsaking discord and wars
Finding harmony in our differences
Blind to color, race and creed
Having no need for class and status
What if we were gods of light?
Shining for the world around us
Putting darkness to extinction
Embracing each other’s light
For the good of us all
What if we were gods of power?
And of might and strength
And wielded each with conscience
And that elusive softness
That belies true power
What if we were gods of justice?
Of fairness and equity
Robbing none of his due
Each of us living in the knowing
That right judgement lies with us
What if we were gods of the elements?
Nurturing each with care and caution
Creating a balance of harmony
An equilibrium of use and replenish
Nulling over-exertions and destructions
What if we were gods?
Not of one but all virtues
Growing in each as we exercise them
Each of us a total embodiment
Of all these powers
What if our purpose as gods
Was to create balance through them?
That harmony and serenity
That we all so desperately seek;
Gods over our situations
What if we fail as gods
Because we lack the faith and courage
To truly become who we are: gods?
What if all our problems
Were from within, not without?
What if we realized today
That we are truly gods?
All men without exceptions
Capable of giving what we all seek
What if we lived in that consciousness?
And what if there was an elder God?
The God above all gods
One who wields all powers
Of whose nature we were birthed
And from who we derive all
What if we learn to learn of Him
To live as gods truly
Conscious of our stewardship
Which must be accounted for
At the end of days
For we are gods indeed
Every last one of us
And we are sons, images
Of the Most high God
The one who holds time and life
