    If nothing else, the miracle of life
    Commands awe and respect from thoughtful folk.
    Despite Darwinian laws dictating strife
    To cull the weak, life’s still the masterstroke
    Of our grand, enigmatic Universe:
    A blessing, even when it seems a curse.

    Grant that injustice, cruelty and lust
    Predominate in our experience,
    And all too rare are honor, love and trust;  
    Is not the fact of virtue recompense?
    Does not the care and kindness that we know
    Point out the way our youthful race can grow?

         As evolutionary destiny unfolds,
         We better see the miracle it holds.
