Or Is There More...? (Poetry)

06th August 2017
I am seeking some enlightenment
yet I don’t know where to look
have I the ghost of an entitlement?
is the truth in any book?

Would I know it if I found it?
would I really understand
and draw back the darkness round it
with a brave and fearless hand?

Would these eyes see through the fiction?
would they penetrate the mist?
might the search become addiction?
does the Holy Grail exist?

Could this be the path to learning
who I am and what life’s for?
Is this sense of wistful yearning
all there is — or is there more ...?

In the meantime I’m left wondering
if there’s any answers to be had
in a world that goes on blundering —
one part good and three parts bad
