Answers are not given
Because answers are found.
Answers are not profane
And answers are profound.
Most of all, an answer
To a certain question
Is ever always there
If your heart is open
Not just to known knowledge
But to proper wisdom
That frees one from the cage
And enjoy that freedom.
Answers are not just facts.
Answers should not be lies.
The truth, you will not lack
If you’re not bound to lies.

    Frankly speaking, the rhyming in the first part of the poem was expected to continue in the following lines as well but perhaps you have your own way of expression and the work is really worth the effort. (Report) Reply

    Profound answers always have their genesis in the human heart. As long as we keep an open mind our hearts will always find the truth in all things. A wonderful and very meaningful poem! God Bless, Peace (Report) Reply
