The human condition

Before the first computer, armies clashed upon this earth;
before the first man escaped earth to fly, countries fell into bitter civil war;
before the dawn of industrialization, the dark ages of bitterness and oppression;
before the first sword was fashioned, one brother’s jealousy drove him to murder;
history stands as witness, I am not convinced of humanity’s innate goodness
only it’s divine ability to recognize it.

For my love this day

To kiss and part and kiss again
The beauty cast before me now
Her light shines and love abounds
The gentle look an angel's crown
My heart reaches deep to hold the sight
Can this one moment pause in all of time?
I wish to keep it ever close.
That I might sup from this flowing vine.
