Blessed and Damned Blessed | Poem


 
 

Blessed and Damned  Blessed 
 

we are with innocence 
Damned with sentient thought 
Praying like hypocrite 
for peace through wars we've fought 
Our darkest schemes pervert our dreams 
Our darkness damns our light 
Combined as one, 
as dusk and dawn 
distort the day with night. 
If evolution dragged us 
here, from caves to outer space 
from ancient flints to atom bombs, 
I worry for my race 
If evolution does exist 
If not some great facade 
I wonder what we'll grow into, 
a devil or a god.
