How many souls 
Have come and gone 
Before me? 

How many had 
The same questions? 
How many 
Found the answers? 

And if they found them, 
Then why does my soul 
Long for the reasons 
For their deaths, 
For their lives, 
The reasons for mine. 

And if I should find them, 
Will I have the wisdom 
To know them as answers, 
Or will I lack the understanding, 
And see them as questions.
