The page of enticement for the curious mind.

What moves forward but stays still at the same time?
“Human existence.”
Knowledge, technology moves on, primitive instincts remain.
Thank God for those who still think they can make a difference for the common good.
Hope is still the best motive. 

With the deluge of knowledge
Information becomes a plague,
A never ending stream of books,
By those who are clever,
Engaging us with their page.

Their themes are all the same,
Enticing the curious mind,
Conspiracies, intrigue and sex,
The life blood of mankind.

There is plenty to pass the time
While waiting for our death,
With conscience occasionally stirred,
But soon returns to the slumber of  death.

Please, don’t get me wrong,
There is a master plan,
The brain makes demands of us,
A lifetime to understand.

The pinhead is never crowded,
You too, can take your place
Where the analogue becomes the digital,
You may call it
Saved by grace.

    My dear friend you words struck a chord in my mind where you wrote (Hope is still the best motive) which how I survive every day in hope of a cure, if we do not continue to have (Hope) then all would be lost!

    Your poem is excellent
    My very best wishes
