The Fall and Rise of Man

I sat alone under the moonless night
Pondering the dark destiny of man
To me, he seemed like a fallen angel
Evicted from the gates of paradise
Or a meteor that has burnt itself
Before it could reach its destination;
I thought of the majesty of his deeds
And the abomination of his sins
I felt the freezing emptiness of space
Slowly drown me in its desolation;
I do not know how long I sat alone
Under that awning of the moonless night,
Countless stars came and went, until one star
Rose in the eastern sky, when suddenly
My soul leapt in joy dreaming of mankind
Rise again like the sun in the dawn sky.
