Before Hearts Hated

Past race  
I race past color to feel presence  
Where darkness isn’t black  
and a canvas isn’t white  
When a soul is simply pure light  
I look to conscience to define a being  
Past senses  
how we all look the same before we had eyes when we were closer than hugs  
before we had arms  
when we knew no physical harm  
only inner beauty  
 
what was beautiful then  
Was that we knew everything  
before our bodies  
put fowl odors into our noses  
profanity into our ears  
Tears into our eyes  
the taste of things our tongues  
should’ve never tasted in the first place  
Before hearts hated or minds lust  
before eyes saw or hands touched  
places, things and people  
that they shouldn’t have  

when we were just souls  
before religion  
before racism  
before war  
when Satan was faithful to God  
When were all faithful to each other  
Before an angel fell
before Abel too his last breath
Before death
