I see mathematics as ultimately being analogies that happen to work very very well.  Mathematics makes a very good shim between the way we think (our cognitive processes) and our experience of reality and works well enough to bring some of our ideas to fruition.  So, I’m not faulting it. I think it marvelous and makes it less tedious than it would be if we had to describe the same things using words and long sentences.
