Not All That Matter


Skeptics brush aside straightaway
Notions or cognitions of the human mind
As mere fabrications that with ease can sway
With fickle doctrines of the vague religious kind.

Some are adept at their outright labeling
Pompous in a perceived imagined state
Of intellectual thrones where they go weighing
All man's beliefs they think they can negate.

And yet with all these meretricious conclusions
Men fail so weakly to grasp the concept of the soul,
For Man is matter, so said Science and Education-
He is not all matter, for his spirit makes him whole.

That spirit makes Man love from birth to death,
Makes him give his life and all for his Freedom-
Sets him apart from other creatures that have breath
A noble spirit soaring high to what he can become!

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
