Instant Writing #32

There is no junk DNA.

No amino acid develops
into complex proteins
by chance, the odds of
multicellular organisms
deciding to grow legs
and stand is beyond
astronomical ...

and yet, here we are.

Nothing is random.

Grass grows only
under a waning moon,
hair and fingernails too,
tides rise and fall
according to the pull
of invisible forces ...

but we only believe
in what we see.

Religion preaches forgiveness,
while condeming sinners to hell,
eternity is only the beginning
of knowing thyself.


- Chad Lilly, evergreen dreams
