Everything in this world is numbered
though not always easily deciphered
the amount of rice you put on your plate
milliseconds when you\'re running late

the strands of hair that you brush
the number of leaves in a bush

we count our closest friends
multiply it with the memories spent
add some love and tender care
deduct all hate and despair

To some, Mathematics seem out of this world
but really, even our heart counts the beat it holds

do you know that beauty is measured in numbers?
and that music is counted in measures?
have you considered the parabolic shape of the rainbow
or calculated the tension of the wind that blows

have you graphed the angle by which your tears fall
or measured the distance between winter and fall?
Do we not count the years, months, weeks and days
and dance to the number of beats as the music plays

Math is all around us, given by God
left to man for the joy of its discovery


When you write... just write.

If your number is up you are dead
how can we relate this in verse
Get wrapped up in numbers instead
try counting your life in reverse

for everything I suppose. For me, if I were to condense everything down the numeric value -- what a boring world it would be.

Now, if I study economics, that has some interest and is instanlty useful, but I don't really care how far the sun is from Jupiter....

Still, a good piece, makes us think.

I really love to ponder on small details, ones that are usually ignored. Truly, one of the most ignored details is the mathematical component of things be it material or abstract. That is what I chose to highlight in this write up.

I am not a mathematician myself by I was inspired mostly by Fibonacci number, the so called measure of perfect beauty.

I do understand though that it does not really appeal to most. Especially poets who weave on words rather than numbers. But Im glad you enjoyed nonetheless. I enjoyed writing this too. Cheers1
