Answers to questions, by the masses are so asked,

some are quite factual, while often, are as masked.

Inquisitive intellects, so displayed, in a need to know,

Some rewards garnered, while some, little to show.


Answers may be given in the quest, that is so striven,

Answers may come in our experiences, then are given.

Answering, much a part, and to heed, if one succeeds,

A finality, often leading to a truth, or to meet our needs.


The whys and whens, the wheres and hows, to resolve,

each as some mystery to investigate, are ours to solve,

Were we all to have been created by a God, or evolve,

What are Universal secrets, of our stars, as we revolve?


Why are we here, and for what purpose may we have come,

What planet, our true home, where our ancestors were from?

Why were we all given life, the greatest gift, and ours to hold,

Will we preserve this earth, in our trust, its treasures, untold?

      Will we preserve it? It does not appear we are doing a great job of it so far, but there is always hope that we will see the light and turn things around. Well done, whonu!

      Thanks Bill, and the answers to this question, you and I well know. This brings to mind for all of us, why are we so intent upon self destruction? Thanks for stopping by and adding your support. whonu

      Whonu, we must pass on our lesson learned, but can we save the planet? I certainly hope so. I interviewed a woman today who has just opened an organic produce shop. She gathers produce from the local Florida farmers and is selling them to the local community. She made the comment that the upcoming generation is the one to make the change in the world that we so desparately need; that they are more environmentally conscious than the two previous generations. I certainly hope she's right or our grandchildren are apt to never see the day when their grandchildren are born.

      Thanks Faith Reaper. Yes, we all are searching for answers and sometimes we do find them. Many are seemingly impossible, and all we can do is keep trying. whonu

      Very thought provoking. Seems those unanswered questions often pop up even when resigned to knowing they are unanswerable.

      Whonu, we have to preserve what we have, or it won't last long. I believe that a lot of people here on HubPages are very good about getting messages out.
