Lost variables in a vortex of unknowns

Seeking an answer, a solution

Seeking our identity

Seeking to be known…

What is the value of our unknown?

More or less?

Equal to, greater than, or less than?

We’re looking for our value

Hoping to be plugged in


And to make sense

Of this inequality, this unbalanced sentence

Until it is solved, until we fit

Until we know what we amount to

Until we know what we’re made for

Until we learn that

 God assigns the value,

And He is The Answer to all Unknowns.
