To Create a Wonder out of Man

Tears are there to melt away
All the pain of yesterday
They turn the pages of man’s story
Reinstating love’s full glory
Illuminating Life’s great plan
To create a wonder out of Man

Paradise is near at hand
For felon, judge and brigand
But hooded eyes must open wide
And be a witness from inside
There to see what has been done
To nature and our fellow man

Pointing fingers do not serve
And cause an erring soul to swerve
Back to live in darkened hollow
Fear resisting every shadow
Trust in One who knows the way
And leads the soul to light of day

Heaven is just perchance
For those who deal in resistance
Hell believes its own intention
Interference and intervention
Its path is wide and paved in stone
Cut from souls who walk alone

Active self comes at a price
Binding man in seven vice
Wounded heart and unjust law
Corrupt mind and hardened jaw
Shadow brings abuse of power
And man’s solution comes by war

Enlightened Man finds armistice
And pure soul comes to paradise
When at last there comes surrender
One by one each soul will enter
Joy will ring from music lute
In the temple of the Absolute

Poem from book ‘Reflections of Love & Light’ by Collette OMahony
