The words to lead your piece for this week are
Knowledge is the driving force of my mind
I need to know the logic behind all that I believe
Even my faith has to satisfy my thirst for knowing
What then is unknowable or unexplainable in my world?
Like the zen philosophers, I wouldn’t want to know
What serves no purpose in this world or the hereafter
What I cannot comprehend because it is too big an idea
To fit into the confines of my tiny brain, remains unexplained
Is this a paradox, a contradiction that I proclaim?
I call it a practical and pragmatic approach to learning
I know what I need or want to know and strive for it
But what is hidden from my eyes and mind, remains
An enigma, tantalizing and exciting, always in the distance
