Excerpt from Truth Will Out: An Emergence From Chaos and Subterfuge Into Light and Reality With artificial handicraft, distorting Nature's smile, Supplanting for what is natural his dry outlandish style! Yet insignificant is Man, a tiny ephemeral mote, His presence 'pon the Earth a bubble 'pon the Sea afloat, A tiny wind-blown molecule, an atom on this sphere, A grain of earth possessed of life, and which he holds most dear.Compared with earth in form, he is a teeny grain of sand, Entirely lost to view - a grass-shoot 'pon a prairie land.And if the Human race were swept from off this sphere entire, Swept out, stamped out of existence by a 'whelming flood or fire, 'T would not affect this whirling ball in any form or way, The world would still turn 'bout the sun, we'd have our night and day, The Sun would rise far in the East and set far in the West, The day bring thoughts of ceaseless toil, the night bring peace and rest. Would'st thou this fact but realize, this statement would thou feelTo be, alas, how true and bitter, making thy senses reel, And swim and swirl as in a swound, over the reality, Speechless, overwhelmed with the tart discovery?Then place thyself upon the Ocean, turbulent and deep, Where mountain waves in turmoil clash, and froth, and plunge, and leap, When blackest night enwraps the sky, the atramental sea, When Horror, Fear, and Awe, lurk in the black obscurity, When foaming hungry waves essay thy frail bark to devour, As when a chilling North-east wind swoops down upon a flower, Uplifted, heaved high in the air, then to the Bottom hurled, Into their black abysmal depths, on to destruction whirled, When shrieks the fiendish furious gale and peals of Thunder crash, When all is Chaos, Horror, Fright and streaks of lightning flash;Then would'st thou feel Man's helplessness, and insignificance, His frailty, weakness, tininess - that Life's a short-lived trance!And were the Human race entire upon that foaming Sea, Tossed and hurled and thrown and whirled, like chaff, unpiteously, O'erwhelmed, deluged, devoured and swallowed, by that seething wave, Submerged for aye, the Strong and Weak, the cowards and the brave;The ocean-wrath would quiet down, become serene and calm, The sky clear off, the cyclone cease, caressed by the gales of balm, The sun would kiss its placid face, be dimpled by the wind, As if naught had occurred, as if the loss of all Mankind, About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
