Silent Gender - Poem by AHO Speaks

Since time began on earth there has always been the form of man.

But God knew there would have to be another
With the gift of children there had to be a compassionate Mother
Man is a solitary warrior always making or startting a war
His vision is limited and he behaves like a see saw.

Only man appears in the presence of God as a sign
Since the first creation down into the present time.

I know of no story nor recorded event
When man blest woman's presence as a holy gift sent
Man's ego described and put God in an earthly form
Even taking Jesus from the old into the new; before he was born.

Man said he was male and a Father too
The Jews said a Messiah but not a gender as a view
It was the new who took the Messiah and said a son
Of course they knew it would be male for his kingdom come.

From the believers into Catholicism and Peter's chair
I believe their actions on behalf of the founder would cause despair.
