I wanted to do something for the priestess' of Leir'tyan.  What exactly it would be I'm not quite sure.  In this type of topic, I will of course completely defer to all of those much wiser than me in this area.   I wanted one for man, and one for women and for them to start out exactly the same then branch away from eachother to symbolize how as a girl and a boy grow, they grow away from eachother.  Also, I wanted the lines to kind of contradict eachother as it went on.  Please help me people, and let me know your thoughts.

Song of Man                                  

All mother                                      
all lover                                          
of us all.                                        

Let the babes cry                            
let the babes wail                            
they only know time.                      

Let the babes feed                          
let the babes gurgle                        
they only know time.                      

All mother                                    
all lover                                          
of us all.                                        

Let the boys grow                        
let the boys flirt                            
they only know the present.          

Let the boys test                          
Let the boys brag                          
they only know the present.          

All mother                                    
all lover                                        
of us all.                                      

Let the men drink                          
let the men fight                            
they only know despair.                

Let the men war                            
let the men die                              
they only know despair.  


Song of Woman

All mother
all lover
of us all.  

Let the babes cry
let the babes wail
they only know time.

Let the babes feed
let the babes gurgle
they only know time.

All mother
all lover
of us all.

Let the girls play
let the girls smile
they only know the present

Let the girls learn
let the girls listen
they only know the present

All mother
all lover
of us all.

Let the women work
let the women care
they only know____

Let the women heal
let the women birth
they only know ____              

That's it so far, just wondered if there were any suggestions for the last word for the blanks to make it more divergent, as I didn't want depair and other words I tried didn't seem to fit.  Anyway, try not to laugh too hard I'll try to get better ;)

a few words that immediately come to mind:
nurture [ness]
gentle [ness]
patient [ness]
temporate [ness]
growth
flowering
developement
cultivation

my personal favorate is nurture....
