Blaise Pascal is attributed with the saying: “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.”

Restlessness of heart

searching the unknown

Often gripped by fears

Confused, feeling alone

Emptiness within

Try so hard to fill,

Things, relationships

Void seems greater still

Hopeless tinted dreams

scenes of desperation

Images chase across

canvas of desolation

Complex design

Comprehensive whole

Reveals in all mankind

A God-shaped hole.
