Astonishing

 

 

Reality is really 

Terrifyingly incredible

 

To exist as a 

Conscious Being

And to be 

Self-Aware

Is a weird phenomenon

 

An emergent property

Of Chance and Possibility 

 

When it dawns on you

That you exist 

As part of a whole 

It’s almost haunting

 

Knowing you are Matter 

With its own Will

And Self-awarenes

Is truly Mind boggling

 

The scale of the Micro

And of the Cosmos 


Questions about 

How it all works 


Of what came before

You were Awake 

And what will happen 

After you go to Sleep 

 

All this 

Combines 

To just 

Astonish Me

Matter With A Will

.

Choice determines the state in which matter articulates. Astonishment, like awe and faith, presuppose confidence in surrounding matter in perpetual flux. While choice exists inside or against impossibly enormous motion, life can evolve. Stagnancy and harsh systems of limitation causing arrest as stillness without options is the beginning of  inertia as devolution. This poem is the affirmation and essence of wonder.

Good writ here.

This poem sets forth one of the great wonders of creation---that matter, elements fused from hydrogen in the cores of stars that later exploded, was given consciousness, awareness, and emotion.  And, to our knowledge, this is the only consciousness that the cosmos can achieve, so it is both a privilege and a responsibility.

Thanks for this poem, I like your easy language to be comprehended about something so complex and true. The working wonder. I'm sure most would nod their heads and agree that we share the same thoughts as you have wrote.

Thanks!

I think explaining things should be done with easy language,

at all times. Being able to explain complex ideas means you hold a whole understanding.
