Written in the wake of 9/11

Perhaps ... Someday (Part 1)

Perhaps  someday  I'll understand, 
The nature of my human clan. 

Perhaps  someday  I'll recognize, 
The reasons for our own demise. 

Perhaps  someday  I'll comprehend, 
The depths of hate we cannot mend. 

Perhaps  someday  I'll figure out, 
My teachings that are filled with doubt. 

Perhaps  someday  I'll reason well, 
The purpose of this living hell. 

Perhaps  someday  I'll come to know, 
Through lessons taught, and learn to grow. 

Perhaps  someday  I'll realize, 
Beyond just what I theorize. 

Perhaps  someday  I'll grasp the cause, 
And fathom all that ever was. 

Perhaps  someday  I'll see the light ... 
Perhaps  someday  but not tonight.
