“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
-Albert Einstein

I know what’s done
And what I did
No longer is this fun
I wish I’d left the lid.

Top of the box
Lifts before me
I watch as it unlocks
It was my fault, you see:

That there’s Ugly,
Sloth, Guilt and Greed,
I wish I’d let it be
Not let out this cruel seed.

Then out came Lust,
And Gluttony,
Then came out of the dust-
Murder and Jealousy.

Slid out Envy
Followed by Pride
Anger ran out, now free
They came from deep inside.

Out Old Age slid,
Sickness and Death,
I can’t believe what I did-
I’ve simply lost my breath.

The dark calls me;
I follow it.
I have no choice, you see:
It steals me bit by bit.

I fall down, fast-
Parts of me go,
My heart is saved for last
And oh, it leaves so slow.

But soon a light
So faint and thin
That wasn’t very bright
(Obvio’sly not a sin)

It rang out love,
It burst out peace,
It was a pure white dove
My Hope inside increased.

As Sin was hurl’d,
Hope came to Man
That rang out in the world
A new life now began.
