Missing Facts

Whenever and wherever
I see around,
unknowns abound,
muddle and astound,
round and round…

Whether humans, birds or animals
or my colleagues and relatives,
I don’t know
why they laugh or cry,
how close or far they are,
what they think or do,
what they are up to,
and so are plants and trees,
I can’t even decipher all non-livings…

So many facts and figures,
but very little known,
mostly unknown,
like many words in the dictionary…

Even inside my body,
lots of things are not known to me
or anybody else,
if I get to know one,
I feel left out and threatened,
and so do others…

What for, why not, howzat,
questions after questions,
put me in a state of disarray…

What I know is
the fact of ignorance,
as also of sheer callowness,
and I really wonder
whether it’s a real bliss
or just an inner wish…

–Kaushal Kishore



    1. Hahaha, it has rightly been said that the most beautiful poem on the earth is the nature’s creation like flowers, plants, and innocent kids. Thank you, Selma for your lovely comment 😊💖

  1. I have to thank you, Kaushal, for making me laugh, not while reading your philosophical musing but when reading the comments about your post.
    I think, the ancient philosopher, Socrates, summoned up the best answer:
    “The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing.”

    Happy Janmashtami!

    1. Yes, Joanna, I’m happy if someone makes me chuckle or vice versa. The idea is to laugh together. But I’m grateful for sharing this quote that goes very well with this post. Thank you so much! And thanks for your wishes. You now remember all dates and festivals of India.
