My new poem "Spark" for idealists and humanists

Posted on February 1, 2012 at 12:20 AM
While I admire many ethics in world religions and went to Christian churches as a child,
I am foremost a humanist.  I recently wrote a ten verse (aka stanza) poem titled "Spark" for idealists and humanists, and I hope it will be well received.  
 
Since childhood, I have found contentment in the great sense of humanity that shines throughout the works of William Shakespeare, so I decided to write my poem in the iambic pentameter metrical form that he often used.  Iambic pentameter poetry is pleasant to hear and recite, and I chose an "aabb" rhyme scheme for each verse.  Poetry is very enjoyable to write because it is creative and challenging, and I encourage everyone to try it.
 
Webster's Dictionary defines humanism as "1. A philosophy or attitude centered chiefly on the values, interests, and potential of human beings.  2. The shift to secular concerns that resulted from the study of Greek and Roman classics during the Renaissance."
 
It's very true that humanity's continuing departure from supernatural ideas has led to a greater sense of self-awareness and responsibility in our natural world of reality.  Now that we have come so much closer to that essential self-awareness, I hope we will use it to build better global societies that aim to better celebrate and enhance each human life on Earth.
 
I've published the poem on Amazon for 99 cents. The poem's first verse/stanza of ten is:
 
Oh Spark, made from your
  father’s guiding force
And, aye, your mother’s most
  fertile life source,
Of magic ‘lixir, you light up
  the Earth
Whenever you display love,
  peace and mirth.
 
To read the next nine verses, you can download the poem below; please kindly give it a review if you like it.  Thank you!
