Once we were Gods

Immortal, perfect and bored

We longed to play

We longed to feel deeply

So we created Earth

Filled with trees, rivers and mountains

Birds, animals and fish

And many such wondrous gifts

The game was ours to play

And to love and struggle through

When we came down to Earth

The spell was cast so deeply

Earth was too beautiful

The feelings were intoxicating

Love turned into a craving

and struggle became suffering

We forgot our Godliness

And became trapped in our desires

Once we were Gods

Now we are Human

We began to destroy our own Mother Earth

As we hurt our animals

We hurt ourselves

As we destroyed our lands

We destroyed our Connection

And then we sit and lament

What is the meaning of life?

Once we were Gods

And if we close our eyes

And seek deeply within ourselves

Beyond the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing

We can perhaps find our way back

to the celestial light in the sky

And then we will waken

to the truth that’s always been right here

We are all Gods & Goddesses

walking this Earth

disguised in temporal human skin

Once we were Gods

but… we never stopped

We simply forgot.
