Arrogance


Unlimited
boundless
indefinable descriptions.

Joined with eternal
or omniscient
and they are used to define God.

Add them to
infinite
or endless
and we define the universe.

Yet we concede
that neither can be defined.

Then there is the human mind
unlimited in its potential
boundless in its imagination.

Are we so limited in our thinking
that the three being connected
is unimaginable to us?

Maybe God created the universe
to evolve the human mind
just to have someone to talk to?

Or maybe God is the universe
a spiritual incarnation of the physical
and the human mind
a bridge between the dimensions.

The possibilities are as infinite
and as eternal as the concepts themselves
yet in our attempts to define
we bind them and limit them.

Leaving me to think
the real unlimited
and boundless concept
is in fact
the arrogance of the human mind.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
