             Origins

Where did our origins start,
Was it from a piece of clay,
Or were we some integral part
In the tree tops far away.

Did we with apes in tall trees climb
And thru’ time have changed our looks,
Were we ape-men at the dawn of time
Read about in our history books.

Some where in that distant past
Before the advent of religion,
Its still the source of discussion vast,
The starting roots of our religion.

In Tanzania Olduvui Gorge
Is a hidden place that centuries span,
It’s where anthropologist Mary Leaky
Found our first prehistoric man.

On my office wall there hangs there on
The written record of family tree,
On it the names of folks long gone,
A blood line preceding me.

English Scotch and Irish names
Are on our ancestors scroll
But as the fires of history flames
It is but two enturies old.

What of the folk who’ve gone before
Down history’s dim dark path,
Surprises many there’d be in store
If we could look back in aftermath.

Christians believe God made all things,
That he saved all in Noah’s Ark,
But time and change controversy brings
As sure as light precedes the dark.

Some folk think that we evolved,
Of truth could there be a smidgeon,
Or will the truth ever be resolved
Of the authentic roots of our origin.

I think it all depends on who you as an individual choose to believe...do you want to believe that God created man or do you want to believe a man that probably doesn't believe in God who is determined to dig up some old bones and present them as our ancestors...James

Earth Angel, Arctic Wind and James, thank you for reading my poem. We have a writer's group meeting once a month and at each meeting someone suggests a title for the following month, and origins is what someone suggested. We all have to our best with the topic chosen. This was my effort.
Hope you liked it.

Perhaps we will never truely know the origin of our species but it is always healthy to wonder.
