A Necessary Light Poem by Godfrey Morris

A Necessary Light

Rating: 4.2

You a fiend a fallen being

Once basked the presence

Of heavenly glow

And yet you made

The whole world blow

That oh dear! Was an unnecessary evil

You opposed the purpose of mankind's call

And rejoiced and preluded mankinds's fall

That dear being! Was an unnecessary evil

You gave the universe sin

And ever since all the pain came in

That oh fiend! Was an unnecessary evil

I Know the night you cast

Will fade away at last

Cause one had come to make us bright

In him there beacons, everlasting light

That gave the will to fight all ills

An unnecessary evil alas eclipsed

By a necessary light.

Nice poem... I suppose that's why we have so much 'bad stuff' all around us... Terry

The contrast between light, dark, good, evil of course has been done many times, but yours was novel and interesting. I enjoyed the read.

The Garden of Eden state is a state of innocence, which had to be lost in order for man to progress in evolutionary terms - hopefully his evolution will carry him forward to a state of enlightenment and the return of goodness. Very good poem.
