A Fleeting Appearance in the Mind of God

What is a man
But a fleeting appearance
In the mind of God?
He comes to form
From emptiness,
Given a name and a set of rules
He tries to play
The game of life
As best he can.
But what does he really know
Of the one who
Sent him here?
So he makes up stories about
Why 
But really, he cannot know.
And man wanders the earth
Looking for meaning
Searching for joy
Quite lost and confused
Forgotten that
He is just a
Fleeting appearance
In the mind of God.
Man is an expression of the Infinite.
