Who out there is likened unto your face?

Glowing like fire in the vastness of space.

Who out there is like you in the darkness of night?

Still, seeing all with your magnificent sight?

My name is Micheal, Who is like God?

Who out from the Shadows the light he did prod.

By Nathan Anderson on Unsplash

From the ashes of nothing, something was formed,

Yet what was its shape? Swirling and churned.

Only a gasp in the vacuum of space,

Without a name, being, or face.

What can you call this abominable golem?

Was it a Djinn, or even more solemn?

By Shashank Rana on Unsplash

Formless you were before the master's hand,

Did take you and shape you forever to stand.

Why did you turn to the darkness of night?

Why do you strive and fight with the light?

Let us, the angels, on our wings bear your souls,

Up from the darkness of underground Sheol.
