I am not a wise man,
Questions–I have so many,
A seeker am I.
No–this is not a complaint.
My path is profoundly worn,
Worn by ancestors
All belonging to my tribe,
My brother humans.
Neither the first nor the last;
Others will travel this road
Leaving blood and sweat
As markers of their journey…
Of this I am sure.
I take solace in this fact
That I’ve not ventured alone.

Honestly, I think a wise man would have questions. Only a wise-ass thinks they know everything. 🙂
Well said Charles and I think you are right…your comment had me laughing. 🙂
Always good to hear. Laughter can make most worries fade away.
Absolutely. Thanks again my friend, I appreciate your wise words and the humor. 🙂
And a perfect image too —
Thanks Jen, I am trying to add a few images to my writing just to dress it up a bit. 🙂
It is a great addition 🙂
Thank you Jen. 🙂
Great theme. I won´t say great poem since you already know it and don´t want to repeat myself, by the way you should write some bad poetry from time to time…..
I remember hearing some great man who his name just escaped my mind but had achieved quite a lot of success in his life( at least materialistic success) that ” he thanked every day for his stupidity and ignorance” seems it pushed him every day to seek new things, learn new things, push himself to learn and master those new things and after he mastered them,then more new things where out there to seek and learn. Always learning always improving oneself.
And that is a great way to live…in gratitude for everything we have. Anyway I appreciate the nice compliment, believe me I do write some real crap sometimes, hopefully not much of it gets posted, but I’m sure that sometimes it gets through.
