A Poem By Hannah D. // 2/6/2014

The nature of reality,
Whether God ever visits;
All is one, two, infinity?
Such is metaphysics.

How the mind interprets matter;
Facts from space to philology;
How do we know our hands won't splatter?
Defines epistemology.

Discover man's own summum bonum:
Self ordain, or bow to relics?
Take them all; let others have them?
This pertains to weighty ethics.

Such is the matter of much debate
And a thousand years' philosophizing.
Free will or determined fate?
Fret not. The sun will keep on rising.

"Reason itself is a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all." - G. K. Chesterton
