This work has reached the exceptional level
A possible solution to a universal mystery


by tfawcus

There is in life an x, unknown,
so let us call it God,
and let us solve our lives for x -
a postulate that's odd

when reason also looks for why,
another undefined,
a simultaneous mystery
Math'matics has divined,

but we can solve our lives for x
if logic is displaced,
by taking why right out of it,
and substituting faith.

Faith Poetry Contest contest entry


There are some who believe that the mysteries of the universe can be explained by Mathematics. I haven't yet decided if that is a case of putting one's faith in reason, or an attempt to put reason into faith.
