Only Man

Only man
Gives worth 
To earth;
Only man.

Only man,
Of whom I sing,
Gives any worth
To any thing.

Only men
Of thinking pride
Make of earth
The glorified.

But some men,
They are not nice;
Theirs the vice
Of sacrifice.

Evil theirs,
Evil fools,
Killing minds
With selfless rules.

Let them go,
Save them not;
Waste not you
On stinking rot.

Make of self
A shining blade.
Fight the selfless

Make of blade
A solid beam;
Stand and guard
Your blazing dream.

Make of dream
A thing so true
All your thoughts
Will sing of you.

Make of you,
Since life began,
One victorious
Living man.

Only you,
Of whom I sing,
Lives the worth
Of any thing.

Shining I,
Standing straight,
Blinds the sight
Of c'llapsing fate.

    Man truly is the xistential wonder claimed by Englightenment for his potential ... created by God for his ultimate glory. Wonderful poem, my friend ... with a great metaphysical drift. Peace and love
