Copernicus (XXIX)

29 Sep

Nicolaus Copernicus

What questions lay waiting,
to be answered, as the future unfolds?
Amazing in their simplicity,
as we failed to see the truth,
till it bites us in the  hand;
Copernicus would laugh
were he to see our blindness;
shake his head in sorrow,
as we stumble along,
never finding the answers
that sit right there within our reach;
for fear the establishment
will ridicule us—make us obsolete.

From whence will (s)he be birthed,
the revolutionary of our day and age?
They’ve come, time and time again,
Copernicus, Galileo, Socrates and Newton;
all visionaries, all finders of the truth,
who failed to bow down to popular belief.
Where is the modern-day discoverer?
Where is (s)he who will stand the world
upon its head, and launch us
into a new millennium of discovery?

    Where indeed? Makes one wonder, doesn’t it? Has everything been done that can? Makes me wonder for sure.

      Sadly, I don’t think everything has been done. I just fear that no one is ever going to get around to doing the newer stuff. Thanks Cheryl.
