Life coming at you like a rocket and it’s not a healing to stop it

Life coming at you like a rocket and it’s not a healing to stop it
Here you are miner-mole heaving earth in the dark out into the dark
In God’s own image if we like other endangered species
Are heading in the same direction how will it be
For God without moles and without tunnels to follow
A mole without the dark earth and tunnels to dig
A mole the planet Earth between its claws
This is why you might want to walk in the sunlight again
You might want to think that daylight can warm you again
You might want to think the smallest act of love can bring the universe to tears
You might want to walk out knowing the universe does cry over such things
So many fractured daylights here you are a miner-mole
An endangered species tunnelling pole to pole
And God following the twists and turns of where you go he too is getting lost
From this heap of earth to that heap of earth
And before lost to trampling are life’s possibilities
May it be found for miner-mole an extended lease
But not solely for underground endeavours
