Poem: Goddesses and Men


In this world
Of goddesses and men
We wear the crowns
They smash them again
They descend down
From heavenly heights
Brighten our days
Darken our nights
Worship to above
From down far below
Grace us with your smiles
Tear us down with your words
Just for your beauty
We do the absurd
We men rule the world
While goddesses rule all
While we make ourselves big
Goddesses make us small
We wear the crowns
We make ourselves kings
Goddesses tear us down
Destroy all these things
Yet we still pray
That you give us your grace
To worship your idols
To see your bright face
We are just men
We worship from afar
The objects of our love
Goddesses amongst stars
