From the shoreline of an ocean to the inner shoreline
Resides the mystery of God, the enigma of nature.
Life is uncertain – a shadow upon a shadow,
A chiaroscuro gyrating upon a chiaroscuro.
A man lives a lifetime finding the meaning of life,
Yet is uncertain about the meaning of meaning.
The human journey is woven in pain,
Yet it radiates beauty,
It is understandable yet it is mysterious.
If there is a contradiction in universe,
It is this.
The beauty of life lies in its mystery,
The mystery of life lies in its beauty.
