What’s The Point?

What’s the point?

The beauty of it is that when you arrive at the point

You see that it’s connected to another point

And another point

And so many other points

That you begin to recognize

That it’s really

Not a point after all


And you see that the full stop

Is really so full

With everything that’s come before

And everything still to happen

That it’s really not a stop

Just a coming and a going

A moment to pause

And notice


And when you get to the period

You look up and see

That it’s all part of a much greater period

That encompasses all the other periods

That have been

And are yet to come


At which point

You notice that the point

Is one point in an infinite connection of points

That fill the universe

And that the point of it all

Is no point at all

    This is really awesome and kindof sums up how i feel…interesting that someone could put into words exactly what my heart feels with each beat, and what my soul feels with each breath, and what my palms feel with each tear that they catch, thank you.

    Within the parameters of the box, we are pointed in many directions.
    All points leading to the same realization, that we have a choice.
    A choice between the illusion of the normal mind-set, aka; ignorance, or outside of the box and real thinking.

    Wonderful poems! Very much liked When I Die too. I’m a psychotherapist who often gets left brain dominant clients asking this question, so having a poem that straddles the ‘scientific’ and the soulful, is a wonderful resource.Thank you Jeremy. PS I’ve just reached your extremely interesting website via George Monbiot’s blog. I’ve also encouraged my husband Cormac Cullinan to sign up for your newsletters etc – one of your blogs is on The Rights for Nature Tribunal in Paris, which he features in, and you and he are definitely on the same path here.
