Having embarked on a journey of thought

Leaving a harbor of reality.

I theorize my existence

As just a possibility.


For where does thought come from

But from knowledge of life.

A new born baby is aware of life

Having felt the slap that brought him breath.


He has a thinking process expressed in pain

And happiness in his smile indicates contentment.

Can he go outside his thoughts and think?

Sure when he's hungry he cries for attention.


Is life an illusion that comes from pre existence,

Where realism does not exist,

For to exist it would become real

And be subject to human thought?


Such a journey evolves from nothing,

As reality has no meaning.

Therefore there is no harbor I left from,

As thought itself involves a thinking reality.

And the journey deepens for
*George* as many are your
thought processes here

We are very complex creatures George
It is not the first or the last time
we question our-self and our own
thought processes

I see a man who is sinking and desperate
here for answers to the meaning of life
his own life "Therefore there is no harbor I left from,"

Love and Light

this is a very interwoven piece of writing for much thought by the reader

Yes, this is a great write...a very different of you, indeed.. Something called particle physics explains this life being an illusion...and such things...very beautiful write....
As usual I enjoyed this poem. :) best wishes,neerja

A little existentialism intertwined withing the verses of this poem, Georg. Somewhat surprising, but not completely, as I have been watching you poetry take a more benevolent and somewhat secular (don't scream George) in your wording of your poetry. You are most certainly a man of his faith, but I see . . . other things as well.
