Don Blasndings (1950)
There are some ponderous questions
With which the great thinkers contend;
ďWhat came before the beginning,
And what will come after the end?Ē
If ever there was a beginning
There must have been something before
If time reaches some sort of ending
Thereís bound to be something else more.
What lies outside the Beyondness?
What is concealed in the least?
Are love, hate and hope mere reactions
Like the chemical ferments in yeast?
Is God merely manís thought-projection,
Or man but a thought.....in the nude?
Am I both the dream and the dreamer?
Are just a doodle I dood?
Well, after all, what does it matter?
Iíll push these grim questions aside
(my soul may have known before birthing
And it may know when body has died.)
Hereís NOW....let me make the most of it
As I live to the pulse of lifeís drums.
Iíll know or not know the Great Answers
When the time for the Answering comes.
