The Lesson:<br/><br/> Yes, my fretting,<br/> Frowning child,<br/> I could cross<br/> The room to you<br/> More easily.<br/><br/> But Ive already<br/> Learned to walk,<br/> So I make you<br/> Come to me.<br/><br/> Let go now<br/> There!<br/> You see?<br/><br/> Oh, remember<br/> This simple lesson,<br/> Child,<br/> And when<br/> In later years<br/> You cry out<br/> With tight fists<br/> And tears<br/> Oh, help me,<br/> Godplease.<br/> Just listen<br/> And youll hear<br/> A silent voice:<br/><br/> I would, child,<br/> I would.<br/> But its you,<br/> Not I,<br/> Who needs to try<br/> Godhood.
Every time I create something, whether an idea or a work of art, initially, its supposed completion seems absolutely perfect to me. However the more I think about it, stare it down, the more it marinates in my soul over the hours, days, and weeks, the more flaws I start to find in it; and finally, the more I'm pressed to continue enhancing it. It essentially turns out that whatever thing a flawed and imperfect, human eye once thought was amazing begins to appear quite wretched. This is why, eternally, God cannot be impressed by mere talents or by mortal achievements. To perfect eyes, I imagine that great is not really that great; rather, humility is ultimately a human being's true greatness.
