Poem: “From Dust To Stars”

From Dust To Stars

God said to Abraham, “Look and see
The dust upon the earth,
For so shall your descendants be
In you shall nations have their birth.”

But later God said, “Look now and see
The stars up in the sky
For no more as dust shall your descendants be
But as the stars on high.

Stars that for a time
Walk upon the earth
And in the darkness shine
To show man his own worth.

And illumine the wondrous mystery
Of what men really are
Made in the very image of He
Who makes the shining star.”
