A Dilemma


for every cause an effect
what created the cause, another effect,
sounds too circular to accept,
doesn't explain, the why
only tells the history of a sigh

and if I can know the source
will it change the orbit of course,
deny the sigh and why,
or should I believe in forces beyond
exchanging ignorance for bliss,
rely on it, assume the why has caused it all
will it change my life, the struggle and strife

    the cause is in you and the effect is you...it will continue to be so in respect of every 'effect' in this universe... and the tendency to inqiure into self is really noble...good meaningful poem, Shimon...10 (Report) Reply

    I think so. Because causes are explored to get the desired effect.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
