319. Heathens One And All !
Everyone searches for the Gods, but many take distinct paths,
Each looks deep within themselves to discover that which exists,
Most explore every avenue until they find what for them is right.
We speak to our ancient Gods through ritual, song, and poetry,
In turn we listen to their message with our ears, hearts and minds,
We honor them often with our love, faith, and sacred offerings,
Heed their mighty words of wisdom, and accept their parental love.
We act within a code of conduct, pledged with a sacred oath,
Live steadfastly by its precepts, and refer to it as our holy creed,
We utilize our religious beliefs, raising ourselves up to new heights,
And then reach out with unselfish hands to help the uninformed.
We live our lives unshackled, in a kingdom of spiritual freedom,
And yet we have all bound ourselves tightly in our respective faiths,
Asatruar, Celts, Druids, Hellenes, Religio Romana and Wiccans,
We are here, we are proud, and we are Heathens one and all !
