Our Beauty: Words Can’t Express

From sound came speech
And from speech we formed words
With words we try to give expression to our feelings and perception

In doing so we created adjectives to describe
What we see
What we taste
What we touch
What we hear
And what we smell
Our five senses

The word Beautiful
No matter how we modify it
Is still shallow to what we want to express with it

Beauty or beautiful is a word that has no peak
The most beautiful will always have what is more beautiful than it
And so it continues with no end

We humans are beautiful
But this word does not have the capacity to qualify our beauty

I discovered we are all equal and our creator never shows favouritism, but I think He does sometimes

He created us with different colours
Shapes, size, language and looks
But in His wisdom he gave us all something in common

And what he gave us in common is our Will;
The ability to make choices
This is what differentiate us from everything He created
This is our beauty, our glory and this is what gives us dominion

And this beauty Words cannot express
In our Will, He made us like Him
And this discovery gave me an insight
Into what King David of Israel said in one of His Psalms

“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet.”
Psalm 8.
©Babashola Timothy Ayeni.
