INTO OUR OWN
There’s never been a time more wondrous
To live than now, nor also perilous:
With our astonishing technologies,
We’ve flown beyond our planet’s boundaries
And altered every habitat below:
Sometimes to our elation, sometimes woe.
We can be brilliant, but we’re clearly flawed
Especially when we’re negligent of God,
Good Orderly Direction in our souls,
To help determine our important goals,
Implicit guidance to decide what’s best,
What saints and sages wisely have professed.
We’re overdue to come into our own,
Our Homo sapience at last full grown.
