On Man's Quest for Truth

"On Man's Quest for Truth"

knowledge
an ephemeral thing
thought
a broken vessel
who shall rise
from their waking dream
what tenuous bonds
hold us tight
the familiar masks
a richer truth
a reality hidden
revealed to some
who submit
to the Creator
a terrifying journey
madness?
the unknown
most retreat
full of fear
clinging to a structure
laid down
by blind watchmakers
never illuminating the core
on faith step out
plunge into the void
a dark abyss
beyond time and space
beyond reason
behold the One
connections infinite
topological unity
beneath man's dim view
shines a light
brighter than imagination
raging hot
pure energy
pure mind
through the Spirit
one can break
the veil
supreme ignorance
of arrogant man
a part taken as the whole
self-delusion
the altar of science exalted
a false security
a failed ontology
the edifice of fools
a broken epistemology
cloaked in robes of learning
an incomplete cosmology
never gaining truth
but for those few
who wish to see
come
seek in Him the key
unlock the cosmic rhyme
discover your true nature
and be free finally

-- Zachary Uram (c) 2011

  2. Bravo, Zach! A splendid vision of cosmic conflict with the Logos of Christ, the logic / rationality / reason at the basis of the universe overcoming the dark lord of domination.

    As Ignatius wrote (ca. A.D. 100) to Polycarp, the Church will arise as a united army of soldiers of Christ armed with the spear of love: “Train together with one another: struggle together, run together, suffer together, lie down together, rise up together, as God’s stewards and assessors and ministers. 2 Please the Captain in whose army ye serve as soldiers, from whom you receive your wages [due if and when an honorable discharge is received]. Let none of you be found a deserter. Be ye therefore long-suffering one with another in gentleness, as God is with you. May I always have joy in you” (Ign. Pol. 6:1-2).

Let none of you be found a deserter. Let your baptism serve as a shield, faith as a helmet, love as a spear, endurance as armor. Let your deeds be your deposits, in order that you may eventually receive the savings that are due you [if and when an honorable discharge is received]. Be ye therefore long-suffering one with another in gentleness, as God is with you. May I always have joy in you” (Ign. Pol. 6:1-2).
