a man that lost everything
his only companion, sorrow
left in snow and ice
yet his bones void of marrow

constructed in a lab
made up from many parts
born from lightning
yet not of the light
does he have a soul
this abnormal creation?

he is but stitches and unfamiliar flesh
he is whole, created from broken
an abomination so gentle
yet no man wanted him alive
when he was born somewhere a god cried
the day when natural laws were crucified

an Adam born of many men
now far away in snow and ice
does he still live?
was he ever alive?
