Looking for answers without questions,

The mind is on a permanent journey,

Towards what we know not,

From where it does flow with rot,

Perhaps on its travels it should use a gurney…

Passing other minds that have enlightenment achieved,


Following its own path trying not to be deceived,

Till the end is reached that mind is unrelieved,

That is of course if this poem/poet is to be believed…


Following others is no way to become,

To do so by the self is the only way to experience oneness,

Seeing the world for what it is,

Seeing pain and anguish and hate,

Discovering through it all thy self,

Realizing in the end we all suffer the same fate…

Discovering through it all thy self,

The essence of life's journey, my friend - we must discover 'ourselves' before we can truly discover anything else.

And even if we think we found the answers, we just find out that we were wrong. Good write,
