Aspirations

They talked about it,
all night and then
the day that followed.
It was a question
of such crucial
and so timely,
of a nature
that needed answers.
Though the forest
kept its silence.
How could they kill
the bearers of
the germ of life,
and to obtain
the precious secret,
and its promise.
It would bestow
at once,
and through
the thought
of justice,
eternal life.
And change all
mankind into
Gods.
