Einstein

If we knew all of the answers there would be no point
in our existing anymore.
He who can no longer pause to wonder and
stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead;
his eyes are closed
(because)
The most beautiful thing we can experience
is the mysterious. It is the source of
all true art and science.

As a youth I took it so for granted
it hadn’t done me any favours
to me, it was neither here nor there
and yet, and yet,

I never stopped searching for the truth.

At the center of the ball of cosmic string
I found love the biggest thing
the reason for everything
…and life, well
everything about it fascinates.

Who
What
How
When
Where
Why

I will never stop seeking life’s truths
until the day I die.

  1. I’ll never stop either, until the day I die. And even then, hopefully, the journey won’t be over. But if it is, let’s enjoy it while it lasts.

  2. i found love the biggest thing…yes…think without it everything would fall apart…and we should never stop asking questions..

  3. I love your poem Bren! Love is huge…
    I love these lines:
    “At the center of the ball of cosmic string
    I found love the biggest thing
    the reason for everything
    …and life, well
    everything about it fascinates.”
    I love this…love the cosmic string 😀
    Well Done

  4. The preacher said this past weekend: “Every human is left with a question in his soul. He knows not what it is, but is often left with a yearning, a void and that can only be filled when he finds it. Some never do, some seek the answers in drugs, alcohol, adventures, a high, anything, yet there’s this void, that can only be fulfilled when he comes in contact with the spiritual answer” 🙂 That sense of unknowing indeed drives us all!

  5. Here, Here friend! It’s that adventure that keeps life going and not knowing the wonderful outcomes while on a rocky route.

  6. I loved the Einstein quotes that you shared and the idea that if we knew all the answers there would be no reason for our existence. I am going to have to contemplate that. I guess if we knew all answers we would be God. We all seek. Einstein sought, we seek. I think everyone seeks different things at different times. Love IS a big one, I agree with you 100%

  7. ah i agree…much of life is in the discovery and what an adventure it is….to always ask questions…some people get very afraid of that but for me i love unravelling the string….

  8. Just two thoughts after reading your fun poem:

    I think the distinction between “seeker” and “explorer” (seeking and exploring) can be important. “Seeking” seems to have a desperate, unresting feel. “Explore” seems more playful, relaxed, casual, excepting. Yet the explore loves awe — the main reason for exploring. But there is not sense of lost answers.

    I don’t think that Einstein would have spoken about some “source” of anything or “love” as that thing. He was not an idealist but a realist with a passion for awe. Or at least that is my take.

    But it matters not, we are what we are, eh?

    Thanks for making me think.

  9. It would be so interesting to know for sure all these things, I think I could still go on though, unless aliens were coming after us haha
