The Universe Is Just A Child Too? - Poem by Mark Heathcote

What is there to harmonize?
Don't you realize everything is exquisite?
Everything is tickety-boo,
Don't you realize the universe is just a child too?
Just as, as erratic and lost as you.

Expanding, gaping, yawning a motherless cry
Creating, traversing the darkness…
Don't you realize the universe is just a child too?
The flora and fauna beneath the sky
Is all part of His unanswered dreams?

Well, that's Just as, as erratic and lost as you.
Oh aren't atoms the planets and stars
Acting like blood cells, and like gasoline cars
And doesn't a photo-plate of the universe
Have a look of diseased corrupted lungs.

Yes, this world is hard-core a complex hall of mirrors
Every word thought is written on your face
Your pain incinerates its self into cinders and ashes
So with me why not ask; what is there to harmonize?
Don't you realize everything full of grace, is exquisite?
So what is there to harmonize?
Everything is tickety-boo, isn't it?

Don't you realize the universe is just a child like you?
In ever decreasing circles
It and you and me have introspected and expanded
Everything, but truly,
Were you ever really there?
Were you ever really here?
Were you ever really there?
Were you ever truly you! Answer if, so,
What is there then to harmonize?
If it the universe is so exquisite, then so are you
So did you ever pay yourself, your life any great respects?

What is there to harmonize?
Don't you realize everything is exquisite?
Everything is tickety-boo, isn't it?
Don't you realize the universe is just a child too?
Just as, as erratic and lost as you.

Expanding, gaping, yawning a motherless cry
Creating, traversing the darkness…
Don't you realize the universe is just a child too?
The flora and fauna beneath the sky
Is all part of His unanswered quest for him for you?
