That anything like us has come to be,
This species we have named humanity,
In all the universe for all we know
With such a capability to grow,
Unique and therefore precious beyond cost,
Amazes me. I fear we may be lost.
Who claims we’re Homo sapiens clearly lies,
For we have grown more dangerous than wise,
And yet if we could comprehend and feel
The marvel of our being and reveal
The wonder of the universal force
That ultimately proves our sacred source,
We might avert what seems our destined hell—
We might learn what is holy and grow well.
