We Went From The Certain To The Probable To the Possible


WE WENT FROM THE CERTAIN TO THE PROB ABLE TO THE POSSIBLE

We went from the Certain to the Probable to the Possible
We went from Assurance and Strength to Questioning and Doubt -
We are still here
But we are less hopeful and less optimistic-
We sense the odds are against us
And the chances of our surviving small-

We must do our best-
And it is our obligation to be courageous and wise and good-
But we sense it does not in the end only depend on us-
We know it is possible that God will save us,
But we now have experience of others not having been saved
Other Species Other peoples other people –

There is a long distance ahead
Perhaps an unending distance

Will we survive in it?
Only God knows.

Poem of the Day

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
