Original Poems

Four Futures – B

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

 beyond our understanding lies
 immensities we quantify
 with words, as though say it right
 adds anything like truth or light

 to what is ignorance, at best.
 the future is an unknown place
 as deep as any ocean, and
 as strange as farthest realms of space.

 we humans are an oddity:
 we speak of what we do not know,
 describing all the things we'll

 never see
