The Search of a Question


Poem Commentary

This poem marks a change in my paths. A growing up. When I truly learned of the word "curiosity."

The Search of a Question

I have discovered a puzzle that is before me

It has always been there, this eternal mystery

But what it is, of that, I am filled with uncertainty

It fills me with the urge to question all about me

But I do not know the words I am supposed to ask

I do not know how to fulfill my self-made task

The more I see the more I begin to understand

But the more I understand, the less I truly can

Questions consume my very state of mind

I long to understand, to know, but lack the time

None on this world has such time

As the time to learn all I wish to find

My words are short, I know this to be

But in time perhaps, I will learn them finally

The words, the names, and the answers I seek

Until then I must digress to other words to speak

And continue on my quest of nomenclature

Only then will I find peace, will I find closure

Uncertainty is an emotion we can all identify with, and I think you captured it well.

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
