How to Say What Can't Be Said

If life does have a point, it isn't clear.
That doesn't mean its not worth more than gold,
or pleasure's bliss, or all that men hold dear.
With passion's fires and roving brain controlled,
one must approach this goal 'with all your heart
all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.'
Subduing desire is this mystic art
combined with brotherlove for all mankind.
All or nada. Nothing else gains access
to higher-worldly ways and modes of thought.
Beyond plain truths, men's theories are a guess,
mere shadows of a ghost that won't be caught.
Until one's fit to climb that inner stair,
we entertain our angels, unaware.
