Without Answer | A Poem by Scott Thomas Outlar

There is always something better
but never quite anything perfect

There is always more to do
but never enough time or the right path to reach the end

There was no beginning
and there shall be no ultimate conclusion

There will come a fire
with unquenchable flames
that no flood, no miracle, no public service department
will be able to extinguish

There is always a yawning grave
waiting with stoic patience for its body

There will always be existential questions
but never will there come an answer

There will always be hope
but so seldom does there arrive a reward
