“Genesis 01.01 – And the earth was without form, and void; darkness was upon the face of the deep. And God said, Let there be light; and there was light. And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
Wisdom and reason come from different steps
and sometimes the first is full nescience.
Through our lives we go struggling and learning
to sharpen our working and reasoning tools.
Time upon time and suffering upon suffering
our race has become ever better and better.
Some have reached a high degree of knowledge
and refinement but many still lie at low a level,
deserving our respect and our support.
Even God has began His creation at stage zero,
from the darkness he bequeathed us full light.
And until today all nights, taught by our Lord,
spin on an old loom weaving, ready by dawn,
pure light never tired to glorify and bless
this holy shrine we call earth.
