Wonders Beyond This World- (Spoken Word)

Surely as you ponder
Each small wonder
You encounter
On your way
You distinctly remember
A souls hired helper
The brain
And its function to play.
Does it have a wee button
That sits on the side
And impressively
Tells you what to see
What to hide?
Does it discover the greatest of joys
Perceived by the previous
Serotonin employed?
Or does it precisely
Have something to do
With the matter of me
And the matter of you?
Is it more intrinsic for us
To keep focusing on
The immediate, the future
The was and what’s gone
So that we may not see
Just how much of a spec
We might be
In comparison to the entirety
Of everything
Perhaps we need
A compass and key
To lock ourselves down
In case
We escape
To the universal question
Of what and what for
Why a mental repression?
Because, I’m afraid,
If we all knew the truth
Then possibly we wouldn’t
Think of ourselves
As the great super sleuths
Of religion and mind
And philosophy
And just quietly
Our sciences are proving
Our sciences further
That maybe, just maybe
Our religious fervour
Is starting to be proven
Ever so wrong
That we own the sole province
Of any souls song
That there is more of a possibility
Of greater existence
Than what our meagre minds
Perceive as consistent
But hold on
Aren’t we all thoughts
In the old woman’s mind
Of memories and lovers
She once left behind?
Aren’t we all puppets
In a giant parade
Of greater giants than us
All paper made?
Aren’t we just layers and layers
Of truth
All bound together
By the promise of youth?
Or perhaps
We are just creatures
Of each others demise
Waiting, just waiting
For death to arise?
But in essence our brains
Are functioned to make us
Distracted by small things
In some way to fake us
And keep our heads grounded
Not flying high
So that our eyes
Watch the ground
Instead of the sky
And instead of the moment
We all just expect
That the mothership arrives
And informs all us specs
That for so long
We had the nerve
To think of us all
As the only inhabitants
Of galaxies and worlds
The truth of the matter
Is that we are the joke
Of their collective humour
The punch line,
The amusement and rumour
In this vast expanse
Larger than all of our
Consciences combined
Yes we are the infants
The universe left behind

    Can’t believe I missed this one, thanks for the link! Sometimes my reader goes a bit haywire and will not display certain posts, some I catch and who knows how many others I didn’t! Reading this seemed like you somehow reached inside my mind, took my thoughts and wrote them down!! You really have a talent for putting these complex thoughts and ideas into beautiful verse that is easily understood!

      Such wonderful compliments! Thank you! The universe works in amazing ways, ideas and thoughts invoking from afar and right on time and for all the right reasons. I often think I’m channeling something or someone else when I write, it gets so crystal clear but its not mine.
      I wonder sometimes if I’ve seen everything for a day on my reader also but its nice to sometimes track through past posts of others to ind out and you get to appreciate the older stuff you didn’t get a chance to read before, I do that when I get time.

        You’re very welcome! So funny you mention channeling because I was just commenting to someone the other day that when I write a poem it’s more like I’m channeling the words than I am actually sitting down trying to think of what to write about. I never try and think of something to write about, ideas either pop in my head spontaneously or they don’t!
        I agree, the universe does work in amazing ways with so much serendipity and synchronicity happening all the time! You might be interested in looking up what Arnold Toynbee had to say about original ideas and how they can be transmitted instantaneously from person to person, very interesting stuff!
