The Brilliance of it All

What planet is most distant of all?

What value put upon life?

How many petals grace each flower and how many the rain does shower..
How many petals grace each flower and how many the rain does shower..
Shall civilization begin again?

What tomorrow may bring, is often by the hand of man..
What tomorrow may bring, is often by the hand of man..

How?



How many stars in the heavens above us,

are they infinite, and without any number,

For one is born, while another may yet die,

as upon this green earth, we slumber?



How many days shall a man have life,

were they supposed, or finite, and counted,

The most distant planet to have a visible shape,

is it a conquest, to be surmounted?



How many seasons are a life, well lived,

those of Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall,

What are the reasons for all life to end,

and will our God, show His grace, of it all?



Will we just pick up and start over again,

as if lessons learned, had no meaning,

Shall we all leave a respectful, Amen,

as in our creation, once more, intervening?



Who will record all of our love and the hopes,

if none are then left for the writing,

How can a person express how he feels,

about the wars, and all of the fighting?



When is enough, the acceptable amount,

of money and power, and, in its greed,

What shall suffering of both the innocent,

and young require, just what does it need?



As the grains in the soil fulfill their role,

rains fall from the skies, to give sweet birth,

Fond and precious creatures, all scurry about,

none presupposed, as their worth.



The actions of men, all so full of such sin,

can they be overcome and all forgiven,

Such a benevolent beginning, by the Creator of all,

as He surveys, His own dominion.



How many stars, in the heavens above us,

are they infinite, and without any number,

For one is born, while another may yet die,

as upon this green earth, we slumber?

Humanity needs to ponder the questions in this poem in order to fix the world. We are killing ourselves because we no longer have the proper direction. As they say, 'you can't take it with you'. This refers to things. But we can leave a legacy behind. We need to discern that which is important. Hopefully, it's not the mansion, but the huge heart.....
