John Prophet

Searching

Eyes focused.
Drilling down,
down
into the
tiny.
Gazing out,
out
into the
infinite.
Searching.
Climbing
mountains,
crossing
continents.
Landing
on the
Moon.
Searching.
Contemplating.
Delving
into the
soul.
Plumbing
the psyche.
Wrestling
the
metaphysical.
Kneeling
to the
spiritual.
Searching
for
truth!
Searching
for answers.
Answers
to why?
Finding none.
Wondering.
Wondering,
hopelessly
outgunned
as to
why?
Why
there a
why
at all?

      You outline the search for answers so well with descriptive short phrasing and highlighting the Whys with a final question makes the write one I can relate to. Thanks for sharing it.
