This poem was motivated by a poem by Steven Curtis Lance. We all have questions and they can only be answered in part in this lifetime.

We search our souls and search the world for the true meaning of life

We search for answers, rejoinders, and a reply to daily strife.


When the answer comes our way we oft times miss the reply.

For our understanding is limited and the response beyond our grasp so the truth will fade and die.


The understanding we need is the act of grasping with intellect what it is for which we search.

We search for a reply from nature and we pray for it in church.


Comprehension does not come easily and many times we simply cannot grasp for the report.

For it will create more questions for which to search for a retort.


The fact of life and this is understood for it is truly a fact.

Answers come harder and not always understood but questions are never lacked.


Trust in God and live to learn each day that you given.

Know the final answers to your questions are only to found in heaven.

I believe when we search outside ourselves, the answers elude us. When we use our intellect, the answers elude us. The truth lies within and is to be "felt" rather than thought. Wisdom, it seems to me, is very intuitive, which is why reasoning and cognition often fall short of our expectations. Perhaps, this is what I try to say in my poem "The Enigmatic Way." Further, I'm not sure life is about questions so much as 'being.'
