Man And The Universe

Poem By Leonard Sims

In the beginning was the universe
No one could make a verse.
Then came the human being
And everything had meaning.

The universe is endless, so vast.
Man is just a dot, a speck of dust.
His life in the universe merely a bubble
A truth that should make him to humble..

But a dot and bubble though man may be
He has a mind, the greatest thing to be.
In this brief life that he and all traverse
He can put in his mind this universe.

And when his knowledge and wisdom has widened
He will realize and he'll be awakened.
He's not just a man, a creature
He's not just a part of nature.

Man is nature getting aware of itself
Man is nature expressing love to itself.

But my thoughts will keep me calm
Society may disappoint me
My family may frustrate me

Very much indeed I tell you why.
It was like waking up one day in paradise
Where everything was wonderful and nice.

Who Is This God Who Created Man

Who is this God who created man?
He’s so selfish and self-centered
He demands us all to worship Him.

My Greatest Love

I first fell in love when I was young in grade school
With nature whose magic and beauty was all around
Like a butterfly to the flowers I was drawn
Oh, the joy I felt, the joy I felt, the purest I’ve ever found.

My Faith In Life

My faith in life is that human life is beautiful
It is a million times more beautiful than I can realize
