Walking down the rocky path where all must bend and turn,
Reflecting on epiphanies of life, the questions in me burn.
Stumbling, falling, searching, as if on a knowledge quest.
Though on certain days, it seems there is no time for rest.
Laughing at the simplistic answers, found within my heart,
Always knowing the journey to wisdom is forever at the start.
Wanting to reach a level of enlightenment hopefully through grace,
Never to be attained in vain, I hope my life will have no a trace.
Answers come to me in time, like peeling back the petals of a rose.
Looking beyond the layers until the treasured center is exposed.
All things come in time to those who patiently await,
The anxious ones will miss the details changing their own fate.
