Mystery of The Unknown by Pat Ashinze


the earth is a city of realms:
realms that have been embossed
in grandiloquent moonlight tales
to make children obeisant and dream
of winds and rainbows and spirits.
even at the beginning of everything,
when light fought darkness into submission,
The Highest Himself – Lord of All
whose hands are bolts of lightening gave
the Universe music as duality traversed creation.
this is a great mystery: of who and what we are.
truth is: there are puzzles we won’t solve.
there are tales we won’t hear.
there are algorithms we can’t unravel:
the mysteries of the unknown;
the secrets of the universe:
Us.
