Doxology - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

...as it was in the beginning,
Is now and ever shall be.

When will man 'ever' come to realize,
A creation that has existed...
And inhabited as it was, as it is and will,
Long before the interpretations...
Of the limited mind of man,
Decided there was an 'inside' scoop...
God selected only a few to reveal.
This world...
Will continue to be as it is until it isn't!
On God's schedule and that schedule only.

Man is not here to make attempts to destroy the Earth,
Then to proclaim they know when this existence is over?

For them...
It just may well be.
For them whose minds are affixed upon themselves.
As has been evident.
