I cannot help but wonder-
As I tread the road of life…
If there’s ever a cessation,
Of the worry and the strife?

Is there really any treasure-
At the fabled rainbow’s end?
Or such a thing as faithfulness
In lover, or in friend?

I cannot help but wonder-
As I traverse tricky slopes…
Is there any consolation-
Or any end to hopes?

Is there pleasure in the offing?
Does the grail await my quest?
Or does only death and dying-
Lie before me in the West?

Is there someone there to love me?
Someone to call my own?
Or only mocking laughter-
At a fool who walks alone?

Is there ever a successful end?
Or will I lose my way?
I cannot help but wonder-
As I journey day by day.

Excellent writing...I wonder and at the same time I have hope that there is someone to love me.  James

Being the eternal optimist that I am, I have to say, yes, there is hope!   Great poem!

Powerful words posing powerful questions...I must hope there is a "yes" to all of them...for without hope what else is there?  Thank you for sharing this piece.

I wonder too Gunslinger...

 I'm grabbing my hat and coat
I'm leaving the cat a note
Quick call me a ferry boat-getting out of town!

Eternal questions.  Where do the answers lie?Somewhere in the journey i suspect!
~Nice writing Gunslinger~


 A life isn't significant except for its impact on other lives.
