Random Poem:

The Death of Faith
megabyte

We are one flesh among many many many,
 1
cogs in creation.
 2
 
 
We are but images, projected pasts.
 3
We regenerate through progeny,
 4
   reincarnating as our predecessors.
 5
 
 
Waivering between championing our importance
 6
to flailing in our insignificance;
 7
will
 8
     we
 9
          ever
 10
                 decide?
 11
 
 
We are small specs of dust
 12
       [ever e  x  p  a  n  d  i  n  g]
 13
       [e v e r contracting]
 14
in the wide plane of space we exist in.
 15
 
 
Through evolution of faith,
 16
this birth of higher power from
 17
              thin air,
 18
true Faith has died.
 19
Dead, alive, dead, alive.
 20
 
 
In one way we live to prove
 21
another,
 22
   we live to die.
 23
And one day we all will be
 24
in small marble boxes
 25
          in someone's
 26
          back yard.
