Fall, Repentence, Redemption - these three are
in sum, full circle of Life's odessey.
The Christian twist on this does more to mar
appreciation of this mystery.
When men's pride and arrogance reach full peak,
the armor of their innocence falls away.
Their souls will sense an inner void so bleak
that no price will appear too much to pay.
Repentence is the turning of the will
to seek the truth whatever costs may be.
Redemption crowns the struggle to fulfill
the conscious loving full ascendency
of a man's soul, now free from dread and guile-
like a king, joyous to walk that first mile.
