I was born
To pain, doubt, fear,
Perhaps, with some relief
And, maybe some love
But, such are the conditions
Of all births, surely
I learned to navigate
The ups and downs, downs,
More downs, of life
I tried not to become too bitter
And was as successful as some
Perhaps, most…
I sought out answers
To this and that – and more this
I even sought out answers
To questions I didn’t even know I had
A much more difficult task
Let me assure you
Sometimes I catch glimpses
Fleeting glimpses of something
Something beyond the obvious, but
As Lord Buddha once said:
You’re fucked whatever you do!
At least, that’s what I think he said
But, then, he was always
Saying weird shit –
Weird to me, anyway
Be that as it may
While I still search
I don’t, in actuality, expect
To find any real answers
