FREE AT LAST
So, how did this creation come to be,
And how may it continue to evolve
Heading toward a greater destiny
That may our present quandaries resolve?
At least, right here on Earth, it seems that we,
We Homo sapiens sapiens, must grow
More sapient yet, until at last we’re free
From all our follies and have come to know
The wisdom that’s implicit in our souls
That bids us to be loving and take care
In our wayfaring to avoid the shoals
And storms that cause us ruin and despair.
We’ve made great progress and are nearly there,
Freed finally from longing and despair.
