Of Soul & Body


I am my soul and my form is me
It is by this body my soul can see
But vision is clouded
The human world is fogged
All of Creation
Bogged by shadow and distance
Far from the Sun are we all
This is because of our father,
Adam’s Fall.

Adam’s Fall issued forth the Great Absence
No light, no love, no lasting peace
Reason rises over apprehension
No one knows (no one sees)
Yet our movements are …
Betraying our self-image (our worldview)
We’ve become as beasts.
