Looking for Answers
Scattering through the pages looking for an answer.
But reading it, doesn’t make it True.
Believing it doesn’t make it True.
I can look forever, trying to find the answer,
But I will never find it in a book
in a speech
It has always been available.
Once I reject everything
There it is!!
I originally wrote this back in 1997, tucked it away in my hoard of writings that I was afraid to share, and revisited it today. The original title was “Don’t Believe Everything You Read”, and looking back now it doesn’t quite fit as a title. For years, I have looked to books, people and nature for answers, and often those deep questions remain unanswered. If I am seeking something that cannot be seen or heard then how can those questions be answered?
