Complexity

Come explore with me he said
A world of infinite complexity
Stretch your hesitant mind
To distant horizons and you’ll find
Your reach can far outstrip
Your prescribed and taught belief
Those ones who held you back
Just a begger, a fool and a thief

The mind so labile it will form
Around concepts hereto hidden
And then create and recreate a norm
More blazing than the stars above
To think so clear is yet to love
The world and its superb design
A rising soul transcendent
Encased within your shimmering mind

We are so much more than they will say
Their dictates hold us ever down
They cannot claim the greatest prize
Unless the masses are kept underground
Arise, he said and find your place
In something pure and clear as grace
Come now that you explore with me
How complex becomes simplicity

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
