I

Post by ReyvrexQuestor Reyes » 23 Feb 2018, 10:26

I
Descended I, from Heaven's breath on Earth,
Sublime, and self-proclaimed as glorious be,
Not one creature supersedes my worth,
Though greatness may have been illusory;
Flaws peppered my whole life intensively,
Shortcomings, the norm of my every day,
Regrets have hounded me persistently,
Peace and love, rarely in my dwelling stay;
Is there a future, the way matters stood?
With no past which to retrospect of worth,
As evil taints my labors as it could,
To make chance at perfection be in dearth;
……Whose image then had emulated, I?
……And to what glory could my life apply?

I love that poem, Revyrex, and as someone hounded by self-doubt myself I won't criticise you for it, but will say I think you are a good, generous, and special person who deserves happiness!
An Eye for an Eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

We are sparks of the divine, as what Theology teaches. So, is having a free will a curse that left us to our own choice of living? Or shall we be just perfect creatures with no other choices?

This is sort of a whimsical self-assessment of what we humans are, or what humans are supposed to be.
