The Search Grows

No idea
Of the turmoil within
What would cause
Such a layer thin
Of need versus truth
That pierces the mind

And thought
Of circumstantial equations
Yet lacking so much
The heart within without
Searching for an answer

But nothing is there
And nothing is found
But past and tradition
Of society gone wrong
Mistakes made mal
Innocence marred

How could I think
That there would be a difference
To imagine
Understanding could exist
To understand
That lives are different

Howbeit all continues
On its misunderstood passage
Defining life development
And changing our views
To see the big picture
A final destination
