TWO SPIRITIVE POEMS
BROTHERS OF THE UNIVERSE
We, closer than others ever, thirty thousand life-spans worked together in the highest places of the great Galactic Empire
We team of two in that Patrol - sworn in allegiance to the powerful Empire and sworn timeless to each other
We served the greatest good and in so doing, when ever need arose would die - one for the other
We dealt justice, honor, trust and truth with strong and clean conviction
By telepathy of melded minds we knew each other to most inward feelings and desires
Cities, armies, nations, planets, even systems sought our help and did our bidding
Man had profit from our purpose - the galaxy was our ground
Productive happiness and supreme comradeship was our just reward
In all of time there is no happiness compares to then
Looking back the loss from then was great because of what next happened.
From without this galaxy came the fifth invader forces and almost crushed the race of man
Black ugly terrifying beetle bodies with hypnotic minds whose reproductive means could change galactic life
When planet after planet lost, showed to you our rules were wrong, only you of all Patrolmen dared to break those binding ties
Blinded in mind I held yet those stringent rules, not seeing as you, that they had failed us all
Stressed by battles lost and the cruel ways of those gross creatures, for once we differed in agreement
Different views - disagreement - a great upset and your withheld intention
Then you were gone against all agreements - yet you knew
I would follow even to the dreaded enemy
And reaching out with telepathic sense I knew disaster was your fate and I thought with dread of an earlier eon
An eon so much earlier, when twin bodied we worked together for so many successive life times.
At that time the invading force in their silver cocoons - with our two minds locked - had desiccated you
The feeling of your pain was more than I could bear - I lost my certainty and my soul brother - until this later eon I speak of now.
And at this later time distressed by your leaving I followed you
but was intercepted - stung by the invader!
And instantly I knew the secret of the Beetles as my form began to slowly morph - my body soon began to look as one of them
I now knew how they took planets, leaving no sign of any man, nor data of their means
Their weapon - biological - a murderous reproductive means that changed all foes into their kind
Before full transformation into Beetle I killed that morphing body and escaping from it, I took the secret back.
Extermination plans began - yet, in newly arranged body now, still I searched for you, as desperately we drove the Beetles back
What hatred for those creatures I held guilty of your loss - but not knowing you when next we met, you welcomed death
As you - now Beetle - recognizing me as spirit, lowered your weapon as I fired mine and blasted you away
In Beetle’s death, too late I recognized you spirit, and could not admit my act
I’d not forgive myself or ever stop the search - still punishing myself with deep hurting grief in all of me.
For courageous self-endangerment we were both honored with The Supreme Galactic Medal of Allegiance - yours in absence
I received your medal for you when I took mine - yours was a sad joy but I hated mine. It seemed I’d killed you for it
I could not wear it, nor could I be myself or have happiness again - our team I’d sacrificed - though mankind did survive.
A trillion years later - or a thousand trillion, we had one short life together on Earth in Rome’s Empire - we powerful team again
Just one short life was shared - what happiness - but one misguided order and overwhelming pain when once again you’ve gone
With sword I dug your grave and filled it in myself - yet in my next existence did not remember why my unhappiness and grief.
On and on, life by life - unhappy and morose - searching always for you and punishing myself.
But now - this life I meet a being and feel a jab - a memory deep and hidden - and feel carping criticism
Criticism unwarranted I know too well to be the sign of own misdeeds - and fault is mine not yours
Fascination overrides and I deem friendship - awareness deepens and slowly dawns a joyous painful thing
First rejected and pushed off - pretense - this great wonder
But truth comes strong when many hours of guided search release the pain and loss - I know now it is you
Shall I speak of those times long gone - ask forgiveness - make known the loss?
Shall we be a team again - express soul brother love? The oath allegiance is still real - the more so now - so be it!
If not for us and others like us all mankind would have perished
So we have earned the right to enjoy each other now - we Brothers of the Universe!
