The animus, the spirit or the soul
That spark of life we share with all alive
That makes us a unique organic whole
And urges us above all else to thrive
Must be the Universe’ most precious entity,
The peak of its long evolutionary course,
No accident, but surely meant to be
By virtue of its transcendental Source.
Inferring this, our duty thus is to
Assist in the invention of new being
As our evolved intelligence can do
While finding still more careful ways of seeing.
We Homo sapiens must realize
That our implicit mission’s to grow wise.
