Student Being

~

 

We all sit in a library, possessed

Scanning the shelves, science,

Knowledge, politics, what book next?

 

We all read, like clever ones

Well educated students, learning

How to reduce the truth into Nothing.

 

We all sigh, with tired eyes

The experiments have all run dry,

Electrical instruments, digital; lost spirals. 

 

We all worry, sat here, expired

On a dangerous planet, resources exhausted

Pondering, tired, whatever possible solutions. 

 

We are all pensive, studiously lamenting

The end, or beginning, but something is missing:

Wisdom, or the desire of truly knowing

What it means to be full of an inward craving.
