i was a scientist once
sought an organizing system
and called it evolution
my approach is hard-wired
into my brain,
terrified of my own

all things shall pass away,
my holy creed

i gave birth twice and my children
were small birds i hand fed with

there are sides to a box, equations
to solidify
and the mirror of recognition will always
draw the hand
writing on the wall

I swear
never again to purchase doubt
at the end of my experiment,
untold lifetimes, i am here again,
walking the earth for the first time,

the cat's in the cradle and the dawn
lights a new day of my arrival.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Now I have me wondering what I was thinking writing that poem. hahaha!
