Depending (a poem by Whonunuwho)

dawn of time
dawn of time
life, as we know it, begins
life, as we know it, begins
As celestial heights loomed above us..
As celestial heights loomed above us..
the heavens above us
the heavens above us
as a watcher oversees his works
as a watcher oversees his works
A calming resolve in our lives
A calming resolve in our lives


Depending upon the CHON..Carbon, Hydrogen,

with Oxygen, and Nitrogen, combined, we shall get,

the appearance of life, all see, smell, and to touch,

and to come about, this miracle, as we know it.


Creating a sudden spark in space, in an explosion,

then its leading to a birthing, this, our human race,

while the heavens spread before us, as if a quilting,

the diamond filled cloth, as in its sparkling lace.


Depending upon the growth of this, our human kind,

with eyes wide open, with vision, and not so blind,

a better world to proceed into years ahead, untold,

when a loving spirit from us each, then is to unfold.


Depending upon how long we may each wish to live,

and what we contribute in our lives, just what we give.

The longevity, of this planet, amid its galaxy, from afar,

a result of actions and in their sum, by its every star.


A creator, we must each have, and if the truth is known,

we pray in our own way, when our thankfulness is shown,

As every thing in this life exists, to have its special place,

we all shall live our precious lives, in a welcomed grace.

Beautiful and reflective. Good theme. Eventually, it depends on us, what and how much we receive from life.

We each have our saving grace and a faith that keeps us grounded but free to soar. This is a beautiful reflection of the human spirit, whonu!

You never fail to delight us with your wonderful poems. That you almost always slip in a call for peace, equality, and love makes your compositions all the more precious.
