Both the mystic and mentor of physics exist
To find answers to questions we all come to ask.
Who we are, where we come from, and where we will go
Are among things that many endeavor to know.
Yet, we all have this knowledge. Indeed, we can bask
In rich inner experience that’s often missed.
The nature of my own experience is such
That I can’t find an answer from outside of me.
I can ask who you are, and that may make some sense,
But if I ask you who I am, that means I’m dense.
If I don’t know who I am, most shrinks would agree.
That’s why many consult them and pay them so much.
Very little pain ever comes from the outside.
Most of it is self-help, and consumption is high.
I alone am the path to the person I seek.
Each of us is a service of knowledge unique.
I’m a creature who ponders and keeps asking why
On earth would in someone else I’d care to confide.
