Nitroglycerin is a highly explosive
Compound that confused scientists for many years.
Something so powerful surely must have a use.
If they could only harness it they would produce
A more controlled explosion, yet no volunteers
They would get to help them due to their will to live.
So, through much trial and error, they found that they could,
By combining the nitroglycerin with clay,
Make a dynamite substance. This one named Nobel
Had created something straight out of Dante’s Hell,
But thank God that it could be used in a good way.
Odd people can most often be misunderstood.
We’re spiritual creatures temporarily
Taking on human bodies to experience
What it’s like to mix substances like spirit and
Difficulty so that consciousness can expand
In a big way. Faith is but a minor expense
For partaking of our spirituality.
Sharing our spirituality with others
In a way that does not involve twisting the arm
Of someone to convince them of our chosen way
Will enhance true enlightenment. There’ll come the day
Where we will be aware of all that causes harm
To the spirit as our evolution occurs.
