Mathematics

Written by: Terrell Martin

I used to say I don’t like math
But today I say I do.
The stars at night like grains of sand 
Are as many as a few. 
And molecules once were mysteries 
Not long ago it seems.
Now I peer inside of them 
As if living in a dream. 
Where quantum leaps are giant peaks 
In atom-smashing realms;
Leading minds in space and time 
Where reality rose and fell.  
On this road of life from dark to light
Far stranger than its start;
When yesterday’s math was hell on earth 
Now it’s beauty, truth and art.
