Answers

Answers–sought after for a lifetime,

Ebbing and flowing,

Never concrete.

~

Arms outstretched,

We reach…reaching…

Still always just out of our grasp.

~

Ignorant, we think our quest has ended,

Circumstances change,

What once was gospel dissipates.

~

We think ourselves wise,

But mere fools are we,

Not knowing that we know nothing.

~

Time has proven our innocent arrogance,

Dumbfounded,

We lumber on.

~

Still this is not new to mankind,

As antiquity portends,

Locked in this eternal struggle.

~

In our end we may finally realize,

We are not so unlike those that came before,

Seeking, yet failing to understand what this all means.

~

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

  1. we always try to know everything – but in the end – we realize we know not much at all:) Of course, there are those people in the world who “know everything there is to know” – uh oh – i may be onto another one of my headache poems:)
