Where is our species headed as a race?
It’s true we’re gaining power to chart our course
And have already entered outer space
As if by seeking we might find our source.
But maybe that’s not how we should advance,
And progress doesn’t mean that kind of move,
But rather we must learn how to enhance
Our consciousness, and intellects improve.
Though nature may be “red in tooth and claw,”
That nature in our past can be out-grown,
Since we have come to know a higher law
Adapted for the human race alone.
Of all those creatures that we stand above,
We are the ones who can progress in love.
