The Antithetical

I know one thing:

I know nothing.

Socrates utters these words millennia ago

And these words carry through with them

A ringing truth, an inescapable reality,

That those nowadays condemn.

*

Contempt to what is the antithetical existence

Can only lead to half-hearted persistence.

*

Insistence that

love

is forever, not flawed and

life

is faultless, not fallible.

*

Factually, the “truth” is out there, somewhere.

When assuming knowledge is in reach too,

to become all knowing is sought after. Yet-

*

All that can be glimpsed is a window of the universe

A speck, drawn out in the vast expanse of time.

Eyes may be the window to the soul

But when closed, they can be the window to

so much more.

*

I know one thing:

the antithetical existence remains.
