In the shadows of the sun
The Bible black pre-dawn
In the "soup" of planetary existence
Somehow - whether by design - or
Accidental, random chance of
Natural Selection and survival of the
Fittest from an evolving organism
Life occurred on Earth and kept growing
However it happened it is beautiful
Amazingly challenging and wickedly good
That air, fire, water and earth as one
Mixed with the fifth element made life as
We know it to be and take for granted so
Easily and arrogantly like apes and monkeys
Yes. Like chimpanzees that are 98% just like
Us sentient beings that are only 2% different
And we are only 3% different from gorillas but
Our arrogance masks this difference in disrespect
We're running to stand still but don't know why
We've put ourselves on pedestals w/ loose foundations
And sport loose fur in mockery of where we came from
Stepping on the backs of what and whoever will let us
Yet you think you're special - so very special - but why
What really sets us apart - And do you use this for betterment
Are you thankful and grateful everyday - Do you smell the roses
In the shadows of the sun - The shadows of the moon -
Do you swoon for life and sing to the great creator of being
