Out of the Dust

Over the course of
our lives, which tend
to grow longer with
each passing decade,
the great existential
problem for most of us
is not mental anguish
but the phenomenon of
physical pain, which can
overtake us on any day of
our lives and make us feel
as though we should never
have been born.

This recognition
is not a joyous one,
but its does demand
our attention.

Soon or later
the body betrays
the Spirit within it.
That is why it's so vital
to develop Antigravitational
capacity, to rise out of the dust
that the body is slowly becoming, and
to find a new home for our hearts and minds
in a cosmos that God has been building
(we hope) to host us for eternity.
