The sphere


Round, Smooth, Never ending, all angles encompassing
As we walk, it seems flat and a plain, smooth without restraint
Yet the slopes go up and down depending on our destination and path along the globe of man
North, south, east, west, all are one unless you are equipped with a compass
All journeys are in vain unless we have a path or destination to maintain
The circle of life is never ending, it engulfs all and helps us find a beginning
The circle we follow and strive to maintain is the path and journey that gives us a life worth the pain
You can follow a circle, one dimensional and plain, always going around but never seeing things change
The path that is harder yet greater in plain,
Is the multi-dimensional path that allows us to gain
It is this path that we find direction,
The power and the beauty therein
This path of plainness and expanse that can be our life-long romance
Follow the globe, round and without ending or expanse, this is the
Path that makes us great in the world of human existence.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
