How could the universe have come to be
And, more amazingly, have brought forth me
And yes, you too—what can we make of this:
That everything arose from an abyss
And has expanded everlastingly
Extending toward infinity?
It cannot be but this is all designed
By some transcendent cosmologic mind,
Some part of which each creature manifests,
All following the mandates in their breasts
To realize potentialities
That make their viability increase
And, in our case, at best we’ll realize
Our human sapience by growing wise.
