Beyond by

Beyond
what we see,
There is more.
Beyond what we feel,
There is more to feel.
Beyond our Universe
Is another,
And yet another,
And so it goes.


Beyond the speed of sound,
There is the speed of light.
Then,
The speed
Of our ability to understand,
To communicate,
To believe,
To know
Deep within our soul
That we are not alone,
That we are
But an infinitesimal part
Of an unseen whole.
A concept
Beyond our ability
To reason.


Each of us,
Individually,
Is a grain
Of whatever it is to be human,
And tho' we strive,
We fail.
Even while reaching for the stars,
Our weakness is
Debris upon the path,
But we continue reaching,
Knowing that ...


Beyond what we see,
There is more.
Beyond what we feel,
There is more to feel.
Beyond our Universe
Is another,
And yet another,
And so it goes.
