The Soul strains -to soar to Mystic heights,
The Being strives - to touch the Divine,
The Mind seeks - to pierce through the Final Veil …

Will these ,
the Ultimate Yearnings of Man -
ever be fulfilled…

Or is it his lot
to remain condemned forever,
by the Divine in His Infinite Wisdom,
to the hopeless ,heart –rending chase
after ever –receding Chimeras…

…For how much longer ,
should we - tiny , helpless pawns -
stagger under the terrible burden
of this Quest,
never to reach fruition…

Haven’t we ,Oh Divine Master,
been punished enough
for Eve’s daring to savour the Forbidden Fruit ?

Jaacob,

Your recent comment on Pauls work has drawn me back to your work:

I found this a very interesting piece of work giving a different perspective on the meaning of life! Is life a punishment with the Divine Power actually restricting our progress? I supose it feels that way at times, but I would add that I feel it is mankind himself that has this responsibility.

A very deep piece of work that raises questioins in the mind of the reader.

Oh, my more lighter view of who is in control was stated in my poetry 'Snakes Legs' about Adam and Eve!

Coming from someone like you i'd take it as high praise indeed.

Candidly speaking the little that i've posted can ,by no stretch of the imagination ,be deemed poetry ...but more in the nature of non prose.If only they had a section here for that .

Perhaps life and all its struggles could well be in the nature of a punishment. Whether one's life is ,inter alia, an expiation for Original Sin or for misdeeds in past lives is a moot point ,having to do with one's core beliefs. The Greeks of course took it a step further with the myth of Sysiphus -forever condemned to lose more ground than he could recoup..

I've read your reply to my earlier post.If only there were many more enlightened individuals like you on both sides of the divide ..the world might well have been a more harmonious place.

I like this very deep poem. I sometimes ask the same questions.
