Reason And Revelation - Poem by Meriam Joseph

I think it's absurd
And it makes no sense
Have you met the world?
There's just something more dense!

Why are we here?
Our lives seem so in vain
What do we not hear?
Dare prove me insane!

Send children to schools
And they're expected to learn
To keep warm in expensive wool
Of what they'll earned

It's the same cycle
It'll come again
Been in society before the bible
Ezekiel's wheel shall spin again!

I believe there's more
To live for this day
Success can't be the core
We're straying away

Watching with our eyes!
Thinking with our brains!
We label ourselves wise
Is it true? We gain, we gain

Scholars refused Godly magic
For what seemed practical
Priests refused logic
For what seemed spiritual

But hath they worked together?
Hand in hand, in peace
Heaven and time together
Holding on to dreams

Ancient days birthed men wise
That accepted gravity and scriptures
And we now choose sides
We're missing the big picture


Dare not forget
All we know now was then
They knew something we'd never bet
Things we weren't supposed to forget.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Some days I question myself on our entire existence. We humans, have got these standards and rules that all of us are expected to follow and live upon. We have people to keep order.Yes, of course order is important. But what are we truly living for? What is the purpose of our existence? I don't want an answer that's completely logical nor do I want one that relies on the scriptures. I want one that balances out both spirit and evidence. Scriptures could be hidden messages that tell us of the world. And maybe, we're expected to link them to logic and reality.

I believe today that life has got to be more than just school, job and family. There has to be more. No, there MUST be more. Something. Anything
