Not Knowing is a State of Wisdom

There are many things I struggle to say
Cough, stammer and stutter
I’m daily looking for a way
To communicate
I want, I need, this I believe
; A verbal outlet
; A window to take my bet
If there were only meaningful risks
Long shots are still shots
I wouldn’t be so stiff
with unreleased need.
Life is far too easy.
Survival is free.
Relevance has been re-keyed,
And no one really knows what to do
; With themselves
; Their lives
; Their resources
; Their will
The bookshelves are full
of pages and ineffective answers.
The podiums are manned
with gurus, holy men, and handsome faces
none of which can stand on their own.
They need our need to lean on.
It answers questions for them,
but not us.
I keep coming back to a single purpose
that I never regret:
struggling to say.

Good Grip is Hard to Come By

I’m ready for a new religion
A new belief
A purpose I can hold on to
With handles
And straps

Always looking up, will trip you up

What is it about the modern mind that leads so much of the population to feverishly reach for the top of Maslow's heiarchy while letting the foundations crumble due to disrepair. The most obvious neglect is exemplified by eating and sleeping habits. Poor diet and constantly insufficient sleep decrease our natural energy levels and creative capabilities, so that the attempts to be more productive by convenience foods and lengthening the waking day ultimatily lead to less productivity.
