Genesis

Standard

If you wish to believe

Reality was created

By the words of God,

Then how do you perceive his speech?

 

The Old Testament is inspiring to read

‘God said let there be light:

And there was light’.

It’s the most divine poetry indeed

But who are we to know

How to interpret these words?

 

You must agree,

Our world came to be

Long before our language

 

Yes, I know,

God is in all things

He placed understanding in our minds

He speaks all languages of meaning

Therefore he speaks our language too,

But our universe,

And the entire nature that fills it –

It came first

And so did its language

 

It supports us

And it’s of the utmost importance

Without it we are nothing

Remember man was created last

 

We have the ability to speak

And to be silent

To think and meditate

To be creative and create,

But we shall never understand all

In this world of multitude

And who’s to say understanding’s the purpose?

 

Maybe the purpose is just being,

Maybe all existing things

Emit the most subtle chords

Continuously strumming the fabric of space

And they’re music to god’s ears, or better yet

Notes of song

After all,

Even angles sing in praise of God
