Earth Is Safe Retreat - Poem by Gerry Legister

In the beginning we never knew teardrops,
We were the fashion becoming new,
God’s creation brought the raindrops,
And the sky in heaven turned blue.

We only knew the innocence of gender,
Stretched far back into unbending distance,
Beginning our characteristics and behavior,
The experiment brought new science.

Paused in a realm awaiting life to begin,
Something’s in weakness can be strength,
The embryo of transplant stood waiting,
To oblige in the steps of unknown spirit.

Jagged thoughts in age more entrenched,
But hopes springs the proposing grace,
Begin the twist of nature on a bizarre road,
With new creation of a continuous race.

Cold calculated chaos began misgiving,
In the beginning opulence of earth was lost,
Temptation found refuge surrendering,
To the existence of a pertinent cost.

Creation suffer rejection and abuse,
And took a ride in ungainly pursuit,
To reconstruct the skills once refuse,
But we could make earth a safe retreat.
