Just a Reflection

The Great Master of all creation
who shaped man and now shapes his destination
Out of mud he created a super being
with intelligence, emotion & a will for being
Now, though only of mud, his thoughts reach beyond the stars.
He inspires to reach far beyond his limitations, his power.
He usually trips up & falls flat on his face.
Which is a blessing in disguise, for it breaks his fanatic pace.
He gets a moment to rest, to think, to cover his face.
And if utilized properly, a pause in which realities to face.
That he is nothing but a reflection of the MIGHTY ONE
With grace or disgrace, a reflection of the ALL MIGHTY ONE.
