The Fall and Rise Of Man
So, you have lost faith in man.
Yes, man is an ignoble creature ruled by ego and the lower elements.
Yet to evolve into Man.
Man, ruled by Self amd from a world without elements.
Man, once the nobest of creatures.
Now, the lowest.
Once again to be reborn and renewed by Faith.
Once again, We return to our former Glory.
Once again, Man.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Man is intended to refer to Mankind. In man, we have male and female and conflicts between the two as in Man, we have Cooperation and Balance.
