Answers–sought after for a lifetime,
Ebbing and flowing,
Still always just out of our grasp.
Ignorant, we think our quest has ended,
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,
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.
