GODDESS OF US ALL -------- ©2015 Lawrence A. McFadden all rights reserved

jesus jesus
i sing these songs
to the great mystery
hear it through the
great spirit
these poems include
all of us the call of
the great goddess
god wants me to share
these words the light
of the world the light
of jesus christ
haven't you heard
he is the light in us
she is the fire in us
his plans her
hands
phallus and chalice
the love the flame
the sacred rain
and if you don't
believe what i say
why is jesus showing
us the way jesus
does more than save
jesus is the one who
opened the door to
her world
jesus is the one that
taught my thoughts
through my arts that
god is the love in my
heart
all men are holy
all women are sacred
how can you hate
what jesus creates
who fooled you
you thought you knew
but who fooled who
ask jesus to remove
the disease us in us
ask jesus to open the
door to her world
she is not the sin
no sir i see the blame
in you its your blame
not hers
you want us to stop
what you are doing
and when you attach
your ego to christ
when the bible
becomes a weapon
i can only bow and
pray for jesus to show
you the true way
and when you tell
me i'll go to hell i can
only say can jesus save
you from yourself
where do you start
i ask to see i ask you
to show me the god
in your heart
jesus doesn't need to
come back when he
is always the love
the spirit spark
in our hearts
*********************
i hold hands with the light
of jesus christ i hold hands
with the goddess
of the night
she is your mother your
sister your wife
you only damn her
because you know she
is right
you blame her for your
sins you blame her for
your desires within
you don't stand a chance
against her prayers you
don't stand a chance
against her love
thank you for these
words
don't you dare think
jesus taught you to
hate don't you dare
say your faith allows
you to hate
who taught you to go
around casting spells
telling people they'll
go to hell
jesus jesus tell them
that just ain't right
jesus jesus they use you
for the things they want
jesus jesus they use the
money in your name
not to help the lame
but only to gain
control
jesus jesus you have
become nothing but a
corruption
jesus jesus you save their
souls and all they want
to do is want and get
control
and why my god why
do christains want to
kill for christ
jesus jesus please show
them the light
*********************
if your god doesn't dance
and laugh i'd find a new
god
the true god is not in your
head not in a building not
in a book not in a box not
in some made up place
when your ready to start
look for god in the love
in your heart
you can feel the love of jesus
know he saved your soul
know you are never alone
know you will know god
through his love
spirit dove
god is the greatness of your
heart what you do with his
love will define you
all he wants you to do is
keep your heart
true
all he wants you to be
is you your genuine
you
this is what i believe
jesus does more then save
he lights the way he
opened the gate and said
god bless
go
be on your way
be on your own
way
***************************
the strength of love
is to hold on
the strength of love
is to let go
i've been in love most
of my life and most
of my life i've been
alone
i make love
poem
i can touch you from
here so there
i thank god for the
goddess i thank jesus
for her love the spirit
dove
i am complete
completely crazy
completely true
completely free
how about you
and me
my heart is big
big enough for all
of us
come sit for a spell
take your shoes off
i will rub your needy
feet
when you know my
touch then you will
know me
if this is not true
then why does it feel
so real
if this is not true
then why have i
healed
may i bless you
with this blessing
i love you
************************
i know you want me
to stir my ash
of time
to stir me from my
rest
may i stir in you
you are blessed
may i stir in you
kindness
may you have the
strength to be
gentle
may you love one
moment more
i stir you to listen
listen to your
heart
i can hear it from
here the spirit
spark
the flame of art
i can feel it from
here the blaze
today
the ash tomorrow
stirred not shaken
given not taken
perhaps a song for
us to awaken
the rest of
us
**************************
i've been baptised
i've had communion
i've been confirmed
i've been committed
i've been diagnosed
seven times seven
different ways
same church
wrong pew
point me in the direction
of heaven
can i come as you are
i pray why don't you
do what you say
i pray is it easier to do
when its been done
to you
i pray you'll leave room
for error
the mirror in the sky
don't you see how god sees
you
jesus jesus they don't know
love they only know
possession and desire
jesus jesus why do you
become their ego
jesus jesus i know you want
to save them but could you
also save the earth
from them
if you could only tell them
greed is a sin
i'll do my part if i could
only tell them god is the
love in their
hearts
*************************
can you survive
your inner most
desires
lots of people do
lots of people don't
lots of people won't
i see the beauty of age
all you have to do is
let go and enjoy the
show then turn the
page
i can see what christ
brings to my life
he gave me healing
healing hands and
many loves that still
sustains me
when i was eighteen
he opened the gate
he blessed me with
insanity and opened
the door to her world
i want to write the word
peace on every leaf
i want to thank every
grain of sand at her
command for the pearls
of my worlds
his love her flame
his plans her hands
his heart her art
its so simple
its true
jesus does more than
save his light
enlightens
if you call this a lie
then i know you've been
lied to
if you say i'm not right
i say i'm not wrong
either
we all awake in our
own time in our own
place
perhaps jesus will let
you sleep a little longer
or perhaps just a nap
he is the word
she is the verb
***************************
i am in awe
of the geese
guiding where
i seek
i am in awe
of the buzzard
medicine of my
mother
i am in awe
of the hawk
to go beyond
thoughts
i am in awe
of love the spirit
dove
god's love her love
my love your love
our love one love
are you brave enough
to let go brave enough
to open your heart
brave enough to heal
yourself brave enough
brave enough to be
yourself
i am in awe
to go beyond this world
of words to pour this time
into time
i am in awe in awe
of you my muse
you give me the love
of my words the words
of my life
that only god would
know like it was written
in my soul
a gift to give to give
my life the strength
of rhyme
a gift to give to give
my life the roots
of truth
a gift to give to give
my life light
********************

THE WISDOM BUM

he was the best. ever. at least thats what
he heard in his head. he wasn't far off.
he was the best i've seen and i've seen it
all.
 
i can't recall any other dude that stayed
a true brother a true lover a true heart.
a heart like a machine a printing press
that none the less made love a poem.
 
he taught me to make love all day
in my head. he taught me not to ask
how but to know why and the best
part he showed me how to open
my heart and he gave me reasons
to never close my heart again.
 
yeah the man makes me think of jesus
with his healing hands and how his
being is a being of love and best of all
the man walked his talk. he truely
cared and that is very rare.
 
praise your god when these people
come into your life. somehow what
you see in him you see in yourself.
a lot of people say when they see
him they feel safe and this must be
the place to be because he is every
where it is happening. when you see
him its a happening.
 
the guy carried around this leather
bound journal book that had a clasp
to close it. and he was always scribbling
in it in a scribble that was not readable
so no one bothered his book and his
scribble.
 
every time some one would
ask what are you writing he would reply
i'm writing a new bible. i am the pope
of the new millennium and here is my
decree he would say to me "so far are
i --so far as doves fly".
 
and man you just had to leave the dude
alone. i didn't want to disturb his peace
full thoughts. and he scribbled and
scribbled.
 
everybody thought the dude had a great
heart. you could tell by his art. and word
of him left town often.
 
people would listen to his poetry and gossip
about some old fat lazy hippie being
being some kind of kind pope. it made
for some good jokes and some bad ones
too.
 
who is this dude that everybody knew.
and they soon realized there was a new
craze what did his book say. he could
not bring his book in public without
drawing a crowd and people got loud
loud enough to be heard by the almighty
dollar.
 
offers poured in to publish the new bible.
six figures was a laugh at where the craze
was at. no one knew but me what he had
done.
 
i figured it out one night when we were
playing crazy eights. all he could talk
about was how people need to be shown
what they did not know and how the
truth is best told a lie.
 
i laid in bed that night and knew what
he had done and all i could do was giggle.
my smile was so big i cried. best nights
sleep i ever had.
 
so then new york sends him this huge
check. more money then ever. sight unseen.
it was a poets dream. i saw him put the
bible in the u. s. mail the same way he
once heard diamonds were sent.
 
and word got out a new bible was to be
published. the sound was heard clear
around the world. and then the greed
began. people who didn't give a fuck
found lots of ways to make a buck.
 
the bible would find its way in so many
bootleg ways no one needed to buy a book.
the bootleg legs that once had track shoes on
now had wings and the money the
money would sing me me me.
 
so all new york could do was release it to
the hordes of whores who only wanted
the blood of his words drunk with the
blood of babylon.
 
so here it comes and there it goes. i
listened to it on the radio. biggest and
best book release ever. he was everyones
pride and every one was in it for the
ride.
 
he said the title would be only one word,
"enjoy". and then it happened. those who
were there would swear there was a huge
crack in the sky when they unclasped the
bible. there was a terrible gasp. every page
was blank.
 
and instead of the outrage over every blank
page the whole wide world was quiet. quiet
almost a day. and in that time not a single
crime was committed. not a single man
woman or child died. everyone just nodded
to each other for awhile.
 
i just giggled and loved him so much i cried.
i went down to the corner bar that night and
found him alone again as usual. he saw me
giggling and said "you knew didn't you?"
yes i said. i said hey you gotta tell me why?
he nodded and replied "thats why we're
here my dear, to change the world".
 
and still days later not one person felt
fooled. they felt the truth the truth they
already knew. and it felt good. it felt alive
and new. it felt free.
 
he told me later he heard a huge cheer
up in the sky and now all anyone can say
is thank you thank you thank you
every day.

******************
you call
my highness

queen of the green
dream
the smoke is heaven
bound and heaven
sent
phallus and chalice
a bowlfull a soulfull
a victory
i can see she mends
me i am at ease
finally
some say you don't
stand a chance against
our prayers
some say you don't
stand a chance against
our love
i live today while you
wait for tomorrow
you will be sorry you
bring others sorrow
when you impose your
will when you impose
your halo
the force you use
will punish you
call me crazy call me
old fat and lazy
go on the attack
i won't fight back
i'll just sit here and
watch your karma
come back i'll just
sit here with a cat
on my lap
and know the future
is not our destruction
the future is our
glory
**********************
i'm dumbfounded
why i've grown up
why i've settled down
i must of been out of
town must of been
when my world spun
round and round
i'm always a little
dizzy and now i'm
dumbfounded
all my luck is dumb
luck i searched and
the only thing i found
is you
damn that was so long
ago then i found love
then i found peace
i do not know how
i do not know when
you mend me again
and again
i'm dumbfounded
it makes no sense
it makes me crazy
your only answer
is maybe
i pause in awe
i know the cause
here it comes
your thank you for
a job well done
*****************
the leap of faith
the leap from heart
to heart to heart
the leap from truth
to truth to truth
to keep the faith
to walk in grace
to see the face of
god when a child
smiles
when you bless me
with i love you
what more can i do
after i poem you
i keep saying thank
you thank you thank
you for the rest of my
life
thank you for the
sacrifice it makes more
sense the older i get
the more i give the more
i get
i forget all that is not
love i forget all that is
not free
remind me
one day you'll see
you'll see the clarity
one day you'll know
you knew
may your day be filled
with gratitude how can
you not find peace
from where you are
how can you not leap
star to star to star
************************
its a beautifull sight
to see when someone
in their twenties is
light years ahead of
me
i must let you go
you weren't meant
for me
you are one the most
beautifull women i've
ever meet
you've touched my life
you'll be in my heart
all your life

at your feet
may your hands see

fool in awe of you

you are sixty i hope
you don't mind i want
to see your scars
your tattoos
i want to know what
life told you

i really enjoy looking
up to you

space you create a
smile every place

in women every time
you come to mind
you may be out of
reach but you are in
my art you are in my
heart enough said
you are in my head
in my rhyme i say
thank you all the
time may i bless you
with this bouquet of
i love you's
****************************
my generation was taught
if you smoked ganja
there was something wrong
with you
i've been searching all my
life and i haven't found
anything wrong with me
except perhaps a long long
pee
ganja is sacred
ganja is holy
each bowl full a victory
the only ones burned
by the flames are those
who try to put out the
fire
no joke one smoke
and you can see all
their lies
one smoke and you
knew it mends you
inside
one smoke and you
know you will always
find the strength to
find the truth
why each bowl full
is a victory
every time i smoke
i realize there is always
hope each time i smoke
brings me closer to my
god
she is sacred
she is holy
she is god's vessel
a mystery every bowl
full a victory
it all makes sense the
senses see the sense
see
when you say i'm wrong
i know you've been lied
to when you say i'm wrong
i know you are not right
with her
a bowl full to me is divine
a bowl full and the whole
world shines everything
is broken except when
i'm smoken
you say my love for this
plant is a symptom of a
pathology
i say my love for this plant
is a victory
my sense see what the
indicus indicates
you can't take away the
beauty i felt you can't take
away the beauty i saw
this is our love this is
our victory
yes my highness
yes your highness
each time you mend me
is our victory
a weed that loves me a
weed that brings me joy
a weed to share the music
of my heart a weed the
medicine of the bowl of
my soul
a weed
yeah i know holy shit
this is good shit
a weed god's gift in a time
when we all need this
a weed god's gift in the
vessel of her love in a sense
we all can see
a weed god's gift
our victory
**************************
you sang
with my heart
the only way i can
share this is in a poem
in a kiss
you mend me
i feel myself heal
the only way i can
share this is in a poem
in a kiss
you thank me with the
greatest bliss
the only way i can share
this is in a poem in a
kiss
you take the whole wide
world and put it right
here in my heart
you say a great heart
and the only way i can
share this is in a poem
in a kiss
***********************
i'm not a part of it
i am the heart
of it
my smile a dead
give away
my touch makes
you want to
play
my kiss makes
you want to
stay
you'll see
my insanity is a
blessing a blessing
i believe
you'll see my love
you'll see when the
world comes calling
me
don't tell them i'm
hiding out in a rock
and roll band
may i say no to the
fame when they call
out my name
may i say no when
my ego wants to play
their games
i'm not right but may
i say no i just want to
be left alone
*************************

i'll leave that up
to your imagination
when god talks
don't expect words
he is the love in your
heart she is the
verb
his plans her hands
just one word trust
just one word love
ask for a task
work for the wisdom
close your eyes and
see into the great
mystery
may you find peace
may you find the divine
is still in your mind
may you be blessed
with many i love you's
there are those who
don't want to there are
those that's all they
want to do
ask to hear it the spirit
ask to see it ask to be it
you will know you know
it you will see you will
see
just let go and let fly
your soul
************************
the keepers of the earth
know there is a wisdom
of the earth
hey you all i know the
wisdom is coming
coming to us
all
when you know you won't
let go when you go beyond
the words beyond the wants
beyond the haters and
takers
when you give
goddamnit thats when you
start to live don't you see
when you give you are
given
when you love you are
loved when you heal
you can heal others
when the wisdom comes
don't expect words
ask for a task shout in
your heart where is your
art yell in hell ring the
temple bell
i know it sounds crazy
but when you touch the
earth the earth touches
you
the more mindless
the more timeless
stop the push and shove
the more kindness
the earth hears every
footstep every heartbeat
this is the spirit talking
to me close your eyes
to see open your heart
to hear her
she is sophia she is
wisdom she is spirit
she is in every nook
and cranny
we are not done till
the wisdom comes
you'd better hear it
cause here comes
the spirit
