Can You Understand Me?

Thousands of years ago,
in the sands of time....

Goddesses were hailed as powerful.
They lived alongside Gods who were both kind and not.
Giving life and happiness to the people of the world.

Today in the present.
We preach tolerance and equality.
But yet.....

Scorned are those who dare claim peace.
Shunned are those who turn to the Goddess.

Hear my plea, I beg you now!
This is not some hollywood silver screen!

Can you hear me?
I'm sure you can.

The way I follow is ancient and powerful.
I find peace in my prayers and knowledge the Goddess brings.
Comfort in knowing I am loved.

The earth is connected to me.
I am connected to it.
everything has a place and all must play a part.

Cast aside your hate that many have taught you.
Listen to me now.....
Can you understand me?

Beautiful piece. Simple and effective. I know a thing or two about poetry, and I'd love to see you really explore this poem deeper. I could even see each stanza being a poem in and of itself, given a bit of thought to different aspects of the Goddess.

Either way, it's pretty, and I enjoyed it.
