The Vendetta Of Knowledge - Poem by Nathan Coppedge

Follow light, and you will be pursued by dark.

Follow dark, and you will escape the light.

Worship mystery, and you will not bear suffering.

Acquire truth, and suffering becomes currency.

Know of mystery, and you will know of mastery.

Know of problems, and you will know of intelligence.

Escape everything, and you will know nothing.

Escape nothing, and you will know something.

Topic(s) of this poem: knowledge

    I am not sure what 'mystical' knowledge is, but many of your lines are valid (Report) Reply

    Awakening. That's the word which I could think of as soon as I read your poem: -)
    The best line - 'Worship mystery, and you will not bear suffering.'
