Within The Hollow Of An Atom Lay An Eternity To Fathom.

Within the hollow of an atom lay an
Eternity to fathom, Find the place within your mind,
Seek vision beyond the wall of sleep that smothers the blind
To their knowing of wisdoms river flowing.

How are we to know Love from reason?
Are we ever to find a reason in Love?

As high above the souls
Of those so long since flown
Look down upon the realm
Within which the seeds
Of revolutions are sown.

Beginning at the same point in time
In parallel the soul is separated
Into the logic of the mind and
The compassion of the heart.

In seeking enlightenment we must
Learn to accept that what has come
To unfold throughout the day may
Have resonance upon the story untold.
Reaching the pinnacle of opposites the
Soul must recognise the simplicity of
Truth in understanding clear.

After all, faith would be no faith at all
If we had any guarantees to fall back upon.
