meat and dust

the human race
is one that whatever your speed
or your abilities
your grace, your determination
your agility
you cannot win
there is no starting line
nor is there an end
there is birth
and life
death
heart
mind
flesh
spirit
and experience
that count for existence
we are composed of atoms
but we have something
that science cannot explain
we have minds
but logic cannot transcend
the world that is
far beyond the reach
of our confines
we are limited
we cannot expect to be
more than this
we are meat
the world is dust
but there is another
far far beyond
that we cannot imagine
we hope to seek
as it calls us
deep calls unto deep
it sends echoes
pinging
like sonar
and we are the reflection
in the distance
answering
hoping
praying
to be more
than meat or dust
