Sonnet: Great Things Can Still Be Done - Poem by Dr John Celes

If man decides, even deserts can green!
Perseverance through hard-work is the key;
As afforestation can change the scene,
And earthlings all can feed and live in glee!

Modern ‘high-tech’ has answers to questions,
No man has hitherto thought of or dreamt;
But man must not forget Nature’s lessons,
Preserving her, however devils tempt!

A man can do impossible things for now;
Even the sky isn’t the limit for him;
To good intentions and God, he must bow;
This earthly-life then need not be so grim!

God gave man hands, innate ability;
Sans God, man delves in sure futility!
