I Want To Know Poem by Om Chawla

I Want To Know

Rating: 0.5

Seriously jocular is my fancy's flight
O wiseman tell me if it be right.

Proton and neutron in an atom bind,
Man and wife, life in union find,
What is this 'gay' life, did nature enshrine?
My ken is limited, you can divine;
I am a layman, I want to know,
O wiseman, tell me, if that be fine.

Energy is matter, matter energy;
All the cosmos it does shape,
There may be matter ethereal innate in space,
I am no scientist, I do not know,
What makes the Space? How does it grow?
O wiseman, tell me, I want to know.

Five elements, they say, do life make,
Earth, fire, water, wind and space,
May be there is another element,
Undetected all cosmos it pervades:
More elusive than 'Boson',
'Consciousness' it may be!
'Consciousness' an element!
Laughable it sounds to be;
I am no scientist, I do not know.
Crazy thoughts, I want to shed them,
Just ponder, for I want to know,
O wiseman, tell me, if you know.

There will always be questions left unanswered. We have to experience the things that we can touch, feel, hear, see. Speaking is one other way to relate. The Creator has made it all possible. Nice thoughts.

You are plagued by questions many... They are questions mankind has been trying to probe and find an answer from time immemorial....Let us leave the hard nut of life uncracked....Let us admit that there are many things lying outside the ken of man's power of comprehension! Great write!
