learning modern math

learning modern math

 

so sad to see

humanity

caught up in the folly

of division

 

the way a child at learning plays

discriminating shapes and colors

into piles

 

but alas

i have it wrong

to denigrate the child

for to him the blocks

that land among the squares

are no greater than the ones that have three sides

 

they simply are

 

perhaps we’re hopeless lost

in adolescence then

deciding what is me and what is not

forever caught

in acts perverse

where self acceptance

standing on its head

becomes rejection

 

of to simply be

 

oh why do we persist

dividing life on earth

to black and white

and day and night

and left and right

while missing beauty’s moments

 

when all distinctions blur into the spectrum

of unfolding

yet unbroken

 

where no one stands alone

and no one is destroyed

neither overcome by light

nor absorbed into the darkness

rather One and All

 

i suppose that separation

is somehow essential to creation

for even cells divide

and God in God’s great glory

separated

 

day from night

and water from the sky

differentiating

life

in order to grow love

 

yet somehow in this classroom

we call life

where loving is the lesson

we left out the equal sign

when conceiving

long division

 

and the earth’s children soon forgot

that the solution

is the sum of equal parts

as in the conclusion

 

it is good

 

and yes, alas i realize that i

e’en in this treatise small

have successfully

nay, failingly,

divided

 

my perspective

from those who perceive differently than i

who choose a life

of hierarchy

and i must also somehow learn to trust

that they are good

 

and so once again

relinquish self

into this space of opening

as i carry on

this path that i have chosen toward Love

and begin again to tread

more gently

so as not to overlook

nor overwhelm

beauty on the way
