A Personal Creed

We think there was a bang.
Something spread out,
coalesced, organized,
acted according to rules.

Was there anyone to thank?
Was there anyone to blame?

It broke and reshaped,
heated and cooled,
decayed and regrouped
until some of it lived.

Was there anyone to thank?
Was there anyone to blame?’

It ate and breathed and copied itself,
moved and grew and died
knew light and sound
and came to feel

Was there anyone to thank?
Was there anyone to blame?

Just yesterday,
some life awoke to beauty,
and made things;
some life awoke to compassion,
and cared for others;
some life awoke to wonder,
and praised;
some life awoke to curiosity,
and discovered;
some life awoke to reason,
and learned;
some life awoke to justice,
and made a home within its bounds.
And some life awoke to language and symbol;
It imagined.
And imagination could serve these lights,
or turn against them.

I thank everyone who has tended the light.

I commit myself to cherishing beauty,
nurturing compassion,
fostering wonder,
freeing curiosity,’
listening to reason,
extending justice,
and using imagination to serve them all.
