If Not All - Poem by Eric Cockrell

newborn child,

dying old man,
fire in a clearing,
moonlight reflected through a window....

the prisoner,
a vagrant man,
the immigrant crossing the border....

the young woman giving birth,
starlight on wet grasses,
the prisoner walking
to his own execution....

an agnostic,
a heretic,
and a pilgrim....

a child of god,
a child of darkness....

which am i?
if not all!
