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 plains

The senses blur a great vision
Bringing things down to matter

The yearnings for an absolute
Beaten down by earth?s sway

Only to renew an ineffable quest
To know and to eternally be
