I seek no explanations,
I do not wish to find
The secrets of the Universe
Within the confines of my mind.
And yet I yearn to know much more,
To understand what I now don’t,
Realising, as I think it through,
I probably, really, won’t.
The human part of me races forth,
Driving to fulfill its goal,
Never understanding or listening
To the reasons of my soul.
So I find myself in places wondering
‘How the heck did I get here?’
Trying to reassess
Purpose, reason, fear.
Beginning now to get it,
Life’s not about the goal
But the moments in the journey,
The moments of the soul.
