To Know & To Eternally Be

Can a theme be inexorably found

In the depths of a restless soul

Digging deep into an unknown

As though a reality in intangible shrouds

The frontiers of a vast unseen

Anchored in a perceptible self

Conscious of a tiny particle of truth

In the immense ocean of the expanse

Is it physical matter or pure spirit?

Kindred though distinct planes

The senses blur a great vision

Bringing things down to matter

The yearnings for an absolute

Beaten down by earths sway

Only to renew an ineffable quest

To know and to eternally be
