To Know & Throw

What is it to know

To feel, accept and long for

Is there anything after that which was or that which might be

The curse of the curious mind, always wanting more, never satisfied

A fools folly to be sure

Yet who wouldn’t want to have just one more cast of the dice

Another throw, a better throw, to achieve an outcome we can all live with

Must we relinquish ourselves to this fate or challenge it again and again in misplaced hope

To know we must again challenge it all, for just one more throw.
