Random Verse - Circular Logic and Parallel Lines

Friday, February 19, 2010
Over thinking can only make matters worse. I do it all the time, those moments I think are introspective that are really just random thoughts drifting in and out of my consciousness.

When I was a young man, my angst was really a plaintive whine of 'why?'. Asking why is counterproductive. It's a cop out. Self discovery is not about why, rather it is about not painting yourself in the corner. It's being open to hear the answer.

Answers are never shouted from the rooftops, from the pulpit or the lectern. They are quiet whispers on the edge of thought, on the tip of your tongue.

Pondering the deep meanings of life on planet earth
The strangeness of it all meaning everything and nothing
All at once hopeful and hopeless
In a universe so vast and yet, a world so small
These incongruous visions of prophets and madmen

It is this duality that defines us
It is this passion that saves us
It is fear that protects us
It is this pain that frees us

Pondering deep meanings is ultimately futile
Truth is yours alone for not everything to know is known
Epiphanies mean nothing except when they mean everything
There are never simple answers only unreasoned responders
Faith is simply trust in a universe of boom or bust

It is this quest that bonds us
It is this uniqueness that delineates us
It is this need for love that confounds us
It is this life worth living that motivates us

Pondering the meaning of life is what it is
Like little snowflakes each of us are unique
Whether we kill the messenger or storm the gates
We all live in houses of stick, straw or stone
We all need someplace to call home

  1. I especially like this part:
    "Pondering deep meanings is ultimately futile
    Truth is yours alone for not everything to know is known
    Epiphanies mean nothing except when they mean everything"

    This was really terrific!
