Fast forward

I close my eyes as the movie plays

And try to see a few frames ahead

Just in case I have to give up my seat

In the theater of time

Before the actors I long to see

Make their appearance.

You might wonder how I know they’ll make the final cut.

I know it because I have faith

Just as I knew previous actors would appear and play their parts

Earlier in the story.

I know the protagonists of our destiny

Will present themselves shortly

And enact their scenes in a story

Older than me, and my people, and the apes who came before us,

All the way to those single cells in the ocean

Activated by the hand of God.,

Author and Director.
