Enlightened Beings

Michael Peach

I dreamt our planet was about to die
Because of human violence and greed;
Enlightened beings landed from the sky
And brought with them the news we sorely need.
Namely that, far from coming here to quell
Through force or, via “Doomsday”, to sternly judge
And send the guilty to a cruel Hell,
Their role will be to teach and gently nudge.
For they’ll confirm what some on Earth have seen
Throughout the ages under the bright sun,
Despite the creeds of tyrants and clerics mean,
That the Creator is loving, good and One.
++They’ll also state we each contain a Soul,
++Or spark of God, immortal, wise and whole.
