Benediction... for all...
When Darkness falls, may you have Light,
when lost you feel, may you keep sight
of that Lodestar way up high,
in the center of All sky,
irrespective of the flock
you may belong to on this Rock.
God, Allah, or Jahve... Jesus!
Buddha, Brahma... may walk near us:
They are the shards that we do see
of an Eternal Entity.
Diff'rent stories, diff'rent name,
but, rock-bottom, they're the same:
All our Heavens will be starry,
variance in vocabulary.
With each religion, ev'ry dome,
we try to find our way to 'home'.
Although some rituals or word
may range from 'sacred' to "absurd",
the intention that's behind:
They are mantras for the mind.
All these roads to "Rome" may lead,
for as long as you can heed
that - except for Change and Fate -
we know two constants: Love and Hate.
May you find the first in line...
and give likewise... you'll do fine!
