Bible, Franz Kafka, and Mayan Popol Vuh

Drinking wine because the wine is
The blood of the earth, eating
Bread, because bread means
the flesh of this stony planet,
Needing to be alive, hoping

To be able to use the words,
All the words belonging to
God. ''God said, Let us
make man in our Image, ''
as it is written in the Bible.

The Lord gave us the words,
As a great gift. So, we are
Drinking wine, and we are
Eating bread to be with Him,
Because without Him, our words
May become silence. Moreover,

We may be unable to use them,
We may ''turn into monkeys'' as
it is written in Mayan Popol Vuh.

Who really knows how many kinds of species
Talked? Why did the serpent talk with
Eve? Did the serpent belong to a
Talking specie? What Kafka really
Wanted to say in his ''Metamorphosis''?

We can die all to be created again by Him,
The Greatest Creator. Darwin's theory
Of evolution and the Mayan theory of
Involution may be false, but the power of
God is true. There is a need for goodness
and faithfulness, a need for existence.
