The Fall And Rise Of Man - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



The Fall And Rise Of Man

So, you have lost faith in man.

Yes, man is an ignoble creature ruled by ego and the lower elements.

Yet to evolve into Man.

Man, ruled by Self amd from a world without elements.

Man, once the noblest of creatures.

Now, the lowest.

Once again to be reborn and renewed by Faith.

Once again, We return to our former Glory.

Once again, Man.

M.N. Hopkins

Note:  This poem was written over two days. born of inspiration and formed partly with intellect. 

Man is intended to refer to Mankind.   In man, we have male and female and conflicts between the two as in Man, we have Cooperation and Balance.

First published here on my blog today.   Dedicated to those whom get it.

How timely!!!

Living in this "kali yuga," "age of impure residue," etc. it is easy for me to become extremely disgusted with this species in general. I should say it is easy for my ego-mind ...


Re-Minders like this are priceless. So is your website.
