I Dunno
By GC SMITH

Mighty minds
and nitwit intellects
have wrestled
with life’s
mysteries;
their conclusions,
reasoned or
pure wish
leave me
unsatisfied

I
don’t
know
from whence
I came
or where
I’ll go,
nor,
I think do you,
but I may err

Myths
may comfort
and if they
do
that is
very good
for you
who
would
accept

Science
may satisfy
some souls’ longings
for answers to
the here
the how
the why,
but answers,
to me,
beg questions

I,
for one,
accept
mysteries
that abound
on our earth
and, yes, beyond
and with comfort
will accept
my final fate

So,
as the winter’s
solstice draws near
I bid good cheer
to each and everyone;
it matter’s not
to me what
folks believe;
what’s in their hearts
is what counts
