The World Is But a Speck of Dust

This world we abide in is but a speck of dust
Where beings are born to flatline,
And those that expire are seen while their remains rust
In some world that’s inept or fine;
For men that are born buy the farm so they may shine
In dusty lands flowing elsewhere
Where they go to places of care.

Hence, worlds that exist in our very small vision
Are just lies mirroring truth;
But what the true truth does is work illusion
Thus causing pain, agony, and ruth.
Still what men look for is money, fame in this booth,
A booth with so many a disease,
None of which fails to end or cease.

Where is our dear God is a question asked and sought
Just so we may grasp what’s beyond;
But seeking our God up above is a joke bought
For He dwells in all, that’s the bond.
I trow it’d be great if this truth on you now dawned
And also that He knows what you do,
Residing quite peacefully in you.
