Poem: Adam's lot
"Why do you look to the stars, dear Adam?"
The Lord God asked of me.
"Why seek the flame eternal, Adam?"
Came his earnest plea.
"I seek because that's why I am"
answered I to him,
"To look and seek the truth of man,
and know the truth within."
Adam looked upon the stars,
the stars, they looked on him,
and burning both together then
they joined to sing a hymn.
A hymn of love and knowledge found,
yet lost to both within.
They celebrated all their pain,
repented all their sin.
Seeking still, Adam went up
and sailed out into space.
"Behold" quoth he in lonely dark,
"The hope of the human race!
To seek on till the end of time,
where death may never chase
and find yet what we're looking for,
a home, a heart, a place."
So looking in the eyes of God
sweet Adam came to rest.
For in those orbs he'd seen himself,
and understood the test.
The lights without and lights within
had always been the same,
and after being so long sad,
he rose above the pain.
Adam's body is burnt and gone,
but we abide with grace.
The keepers of the fire within,
the whole great human race.
We burn with passion, seek the truth.
Our eyes turn to the skies,
and hope to do as Adam did,
discern the truth from lies.
