****** point of origin ******
What men may come

What day may dawn
what sun may rise
what life may come
what face may shine
what life may find
what love may bond
what child may born
what dream may come

what life may want
what soul may find
what people may sin
what bomb may drop
what life may die
what men may come
what men may kill
