A deep dive into questions that address purpose.
It’s a gussied up wasteland
pretty but deadly.
Shining silver and gold
the facade is so heavy.
The more we grasp
the less we get.
Holding tight
are we there yet?
Do we have the courage to walk against the grain?
Do we wrestle with questions?
Are we too afraid to seek the truth?
What happened to the thinker?
Is wisdom really any old man with gray hair?
What if there is more?
Are you willing to seek?
What if goodness is breaking through?
What if it comes from me and you?
Not us alone, but rather something inside us?
A lot of questions to ponder
I believe there is an answer.
Stronger and deeper than ourselves.
An answer we fear, but really is Love.
Not the love of self-satisfaction, but the Love that comes from self-sacrifice.
Would you lay down your life for a friend?
Would you lay down your life for an enemy?
More questions begin to arise, but the truth remains that Love is the greatest commandment of all.
