Freewill

The mystery

is not what the Great Spirit

will make of us,

but what we make of ourselves

with the gifts

and free choice

Edoda (God/Father) has bestowed.

Has the Unehlanvhi (Creator)

set Himself up as taskmaster?

We are not shackled

by spiritual bonds.

We are not flogged

by anidawehi (angels).

We are not served

to Asgina (Beast/Devil) for lunch,

merely tempted.

When we succumb

we share responsibility

with the tempter

Why blame the All-Seer?

Freewill bears responsibility

and consequence

of each choice.

The only protection from blunders

is to wed Wisdom.
