Awed into Silence


Being of non-being
Unbearable Light who lives in darkness
All knowing Unknowable
Beginning who is the End
The silence behind all sound
The certain uncertainty of all that is
Divine mystery undescribed, indefined

Yet man in uncertain certainty
Describes
Formulates
Hypothesises
Postulates
Theologises
To define, confine, explain
His fears in certain certainty

And in his fear praying
Imploring for
Peace, prosperity,
Health, wealth,
Mercy, money
Friends, freedom
Self and sainthood
He hopes in the answer
To know he’s loved

But when all praying ceases
Litanies no more intoned
Definitions undefined
Then in speechless wonder
I shall stand in silent awe
Lost in wonder
Divine mystery revealed.
