God In The Womb - Poem by Sean Godley

Wisdom passed for centuries in our dreams,
Within the silent dead, who there can talk
Of where it all began, with distant screams,
And our first footsteps, when we learnt to walk,
And ran into the wealth of history’s growth,
Is waiting for us, if we’d just believe,
It is to faith we must make our one oath.
The power there you cannot now perceive:
It’s not in God, but within our own flesh,
The strength we need to reach our pining goal,
It’s where true glory and forever mesh;
The immortality of our own soul.
But only for as long as we’re alive;
Take heed of this, and know the godlike drive.
