A Thought I’ve Never Thought Before

By Adam J. Pearson

I yearn and long to think a thought I’ve never thought before,
A thought that cuts through stories and takes me right to the core.

The thoughts here in my mind, they are so old, they recombine,
These words I use weren’t coined by me, but in them I’m entwined.

I want to reach the heart of truth where not a word can reach,
I want to dive into the sea, not tarry on the beach.

I don’t want new beliefs to hold or theories second-hand,
I want to taste reality, explore its pathless land.

That’s why I want to think a thought I’ve never thought before,
A thought that cuts through stories and takes me right to the core.

Because our time, it is so short; death comes for all, I fear,
That’s why I want to taste the truth deeply while I’m still here.
