Perplexity is the beginning of knowledge
The word "perplex" began as meaning something interwoven or entangled
And then devolved to bewildered
Now, how did that happen?
Was Gibran correct?
should we embrace our perplexity?
or have we simply made life
too knotty of a problem
To untangle it all?
Have we tangled things up so completely
That we spend our lives dozing in a wilderness of bewilderment?
Life is complex
and it is our reflex
to shy away from that which may perplex
But have a go!
Seek it out!
Take that which perplexes for a spin
you will never "know"
until you do
and that's poetiquejustis
There is gold and abundance of costly stones,
but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
