Where Did I Come From? Why Am I Here


Did I come from a dark corner of the world,
where my roots were earth over by the ravishes of time?


Perhaps the Eden Garden, foretold so many years afore,
when disobedience became a chastening rod?


Maybe to lend a hand and back, like the Beast Of Burden
did for the toilsome task at hand?


To mix mind and intellect to discern the deeper
things of life?


To add a hue of color to balance out the tender
shade of pale?


To season the taste of the thing mundane?


To lend a spirit of suffering and the joy of recovery?


There's One who knows full well, Why?
Because wisdom is the Principle Thing.
