Inquiring Minds

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Comparison, at the edge of understanding,

is no definitive truth, merely clutching at meaning.

We learn by seeking understanding,

truth finds us by degree and as a consequence.


A logical mind finds sustenance

by seeking out definition and placement.

Labels and containment help us acquire the shell of truth,

the first outer layer and most inert version of truth.


Complexity and knowing arrive by time,

and the freedom of substance without labels,

given flight to explore the possibilities of reality,

and a more flexible understanding.


Narrow-mindedness can limit reality,

adhere our souls to the bounds of logic,

the superficial most obvious conclusions.

We must in our quest release our containment.


We all suffer the boundaries of belief

and the ineptitude of comparisons.

Life is layered in beauty, each one a key to another,

inquiry the first step of an arduous journey.
