“What Then?”

Have you in wakening or sleeping hours
Tried to fathom your depth of mind?
The dark corners, the shady nooks,
Have you “The Answer” tried to find?
What lingers there?
What hopes, desires, virtues and hates
What reasoning and thinking trends,
What scope to master one’s Fate,
What needs we cannot comprehend?

If one could bring these all to light
To face this wearied world of Men,
These hoarded thoughts, of day and night
What then?
