my soul can break the darkness
because the light is its call


the Creator gave substance and forms
to all seen and all unseen
He gave them spirit and talent
and unalterable universal laws
His Creation works from inside
to inside so today
He ceased to be modern
in comparison with those who destroy myths
now He is just a
poor minor and obsolete romantic

my God
if you make an effort
and renew Your Creation
abandoning old habits
criterions and laws
the Universe becomes disorganized
confused and incomprehensible
if You also bribe devils
and benefit that all nothings
want to be great
nobody would understand this commotion
and You would be decreed as genial

but better my God
make those who really love You
be Your managers
of stellar movements
in the sky
and human lives
on earth
