Philosopher - Poem by Della Perry

Therefore, I have no answers
No reasons echo in my empty cavity of mind
Solutions are hidden in complexity cupboards
Doors jammed shut with rhyme
Responses ran away in opposite directions
Like will'o'wisps disappearing in little clouds of haze.
An unidentified woman
Nameless; retorted air
Just questions;
They mean nothing
Just unanswered
Questions.

Christof Koch - Neuroscientist wrote: You should never listen to the answers of philosophers, but you should listen to their questions. It just made me realize I have so many unanswered questions too.

    All the answers
    that you seek
    are found
    in the deepest sleep
    there is
    unfortunately most of us are
    so tired
    from trying to survive
    that they stay
    beneath the dream's
    of day or night.. iip

    “complexity cupboards” …………’love’ it.

    “An unidentified woman
    Nameless; retorted air
    Just questions; ” …………..i’m lost a bit here. can you tell me why? oh, that is asking for an answer; pardon me. :)

    favorite lines:

    “Responses ran away in opposite directions
    Like will'o'wisps disappearing in little clouds of haze.”

    a neuroscientist wanted to study my brain once. but she found no neurons, so she sent me home.

    ''Therefore, I have no answers''

    ''You should never listen to the answers of philosophers, but you should listen to their questions''
    - surely a wise saying

    ''I have so many unanswered questions too.''
    - all of us have.. ;)
