Sonnet On Future Progress

by E. Shaun Russell

I am here-- uploaded and unafraid
Of the technology great minds have made;
The projects of dreams: now reality,
Are revered by few but embraced by me.
I have surpassed the fated social trend
To exist instead of live-- to depend
Upon an authoritarian God--
I have learned that all such beliefs are flawed.
I welcome the change tomorrow will bring,
And acknowledge my reason for being;
I will not die-- I will not be death^s slave,
I'll transcend the boundaries: I will be more,
I shall surpass all mortal limits, for
The purpose of life should not be the grave.
