The structure of our soul
The semblance of existence remains in the worth of our lives,
In the structure of what grows within;
Yet the good of all mankind is measured by its worth
And not by the makeup of those lives;
Still ponder the signs of our thoughts and beliefs
And the structure of the ideas therein
We remain beneath the starlit side of the moon,
Forever lost in a light still unseen;
And the intention of ones worth is measured by its character
Until the structure of that character is consumed;
Farewell to the uncertainties of our faith
And what is held in the structure within
Could time in passage take the worth of us all?
Like a faun in the winter of its being;
But instilled our memories seem so long to depart
That the structure of thought is no more!
For a shadow is lost in silent demise
Hidden in the structure within
