Wonder by Adam Levon Brown

The grand scheme evades us like so many stars

like so many pennies saved up in our jars

We philosophize and theorize on what it all means


The questions are infinite as we ask in our teens

For every answer there are a million questions to pose

Like counting the dewdrops on a newly budding rose


I can only ask and not answer in this line of prose

The mysteries of the universe entrance us all the same

No discrimination among the prophets of fame


I ask, why is it that we are all here?


The answer eludes me even when you are near.

This poem cannot answer all of your questions

All it can do is make you reflect on your lessons


Why are we here?


That is the query

I could answer you with any number of theory

The truth is truth and it cannot be known


Until the true prophets make themselves shown

Ask your life away;

But nothing will be revealed . . .


Answer in vain and your fate will be sealed.
