Oblivious

Man...
like a fetus within its mother's womb
with the potential to become its tomb
knows only the warmth and comfort
that it consumes...

oblivious to the source of its
nurture...

Man...
like a fetus shrouded within its sac
so fragile and sensitive that it may crack
lost to the knowledge
that it lacks...

oblivious to the filaments of its
nature...

1989 Jim Cain
