The Complexities of Reality

There are many things in this life
worth knowing
happiness, laughter, love
and there are many things maybe not worth knowing
but that find you anyways
heartbreak, loneliness
There are complexities we know but can never understand
life and death, purpose, failure
What is Wisdom
if the old man understands
no more than the child
if the first breath is no less fragile
than the last
if the reality that drags us
seems to have no direction other than forward
and the Earth
can only revolve around the Sun?
