Custody

Custody for wordpress

God granted us
custody of this planet,
this magical world
formed of thought,
insects, plants and fowl,
of mammals,
reptiles and the human smile.

God granted us
the aroma of flowers,
the taste of honey
and the stink of feces.

God granted us
black and white.

God granted us
the custody of soil,
the custody of nutrients, seeds
and purity of food.

God granted us
the touch of a hand,
the knowledge of love
and the arms to reach
and to hold.

God granted us
right and wrong.

God granted us
the custody of children,
the custody of help
and the custody to govern
ourselves.

God granted us
the emotions to sing
the emotions to laugh,
and the emotions to cry.

God granted us
brothers, sisters and groups,
cities, nations and a universe
on which to build.

God granted us
the means to create
and the means to destroy.

God granted us
the means to decide.
