The significant

After Psalm 15

The glory of a life
we strive for, be it
power, or reputation,
or retribution, or wealth,
or fame, or justice,
or recognition, this is
the substance, the meaning
of who we are, the winds
we chase, the gods
we worship. We see
what gives us meaning,
and we call it 
the significant. Yet
off stage,
off stage, voice sing,
not to us,
not to us.
