I Have Come Into this World to See…

I have come into this world to see this:
The sword drop from men’s hGolden Eyes-AKPhotoands
even at the height of their arc of anger
Because we have finally realized
there is just one flesh to wound……

I have come into this world to see this:

All creatures hold hands as we pass through this miraculous existence we share on the way to even a greater being of soul,
a being of just ecstatic light, forever entwined and at play with Him.

I have come into this world to hear this:
Every song the earth has sung since it was conceived in the Divine’s womb
and began spinning from His wish,
Every song by wing and fin and hoof, every song by hill and field and tree and woman and child,
every song of stream and rock,
every song of tool and lyre and flute,
every song of gold and emerald and fire,
every song die heart should cry with magnificent dignity to know itself as God;
for all other knowledge will leave us again in want and aching-
only imbibing the glorious Sun will complete us.

I have come into the world to experience this:
men so true to love they would rather die before speaking an unkind word,
men so true their lives are His covenant— the promise of hope.

I have come into this world to see this:
the sword drop from men’s hands even at the height of their arc of rage
because we have finally realized

there is just one flesh

we can wound.
