So you think you have life figured out.
You have all the answers... there is no doubt.


I am not one to grumble but life can be one big question

A good example is an insurance proviso.. even the exclusions have their exclusion

I think I have this all figured out and then, I’m riddled with confusion

Once I thought I found the answers the questions became ambiguous

Meaning the answers that may apply to the situation may be only one of many that are superfluous

After many years of searching only to find everything but the answer for which I explore

I find myself no more perceptive to the one clear answer that I spent years and years to search for

Therefore, I do not claim to be an expert on life’s bounty of wonderful sensation

For I now know without a doubt that life has become one huge list of repudiation

Whatever that means
