Grandmother God

Judging and not supporting decisions, are two different things;
There are reasons not to choose the consequences others bring.
Why support decisions of thrill seekers and adventurers,
Not on proven paths whose end destinations are secure?

One can support mutual insurance for any group with common values,
But tired of being penalized by those who, reason and science, refused.
The problems and inter-generational wars seem to come in any society
That punishes those who seek protection from irresponsible activities.

Countries should only concern themselves with the values,
From which humanity's eternal peace will finally be pulled.
Go back to look at children before they are taught fear;
We will discover the values we humans should hold dear.

The Sacred Spirit's religion is not where we destroy humanity;
It's, from the beginning: lust, competition, and jealousy.
Cooperation has long been presented as weakness,
But by war's continuation, only hatred, does increase.

If we envisioned "God" as grandmother, not warlord,
Would we, then, put down our tribes' deadly swords?
There would be no more competition for supremacy,
Only a place of peace where all grandchildren could be.

"Not in my house," the God Grandmother would proclaim.
It would not matter, to her, on whom the fight was to blame.
Combatants would be put out in the yard to fight it out;
Her own home and garden's peace wouldn't be in doubt.

Perhaps it is time that we look to grandmother wisdom,
To find the eternal path to universal peace for all humans.
Let those who choose anarchy or violence to suffer,
Without the vulnerable and innocent as their buffer.
