I continue… by D.A. Pratt

I continue …

to believe
that I have something to say …
something worthwhile …
something worth reading
if I were to write about it …
but I am also continuing
to struggle over questions
about what to say … what to write …

perhaps I’m really struggling over

envisioning who might be interested

in reading what I want to write …
like most others (maybe many others
or perhaps just some others)
my thoughts range over a myriad
of subjects … on some subjects
I know that I am an amateur …
on others I feel I know something
(experiences and study add up
to something … surely)
and I do allow myself
to mull things over
when encountering ideas
I have not previously explored …
I have core beliefs (it this is the term):
they are the building blocks
of my personal philosophy
(my Weltanschauung perhaps) …
this allows me to dismiss
a lot of nonsense as nonsense …
this is vital now … at a time when
burgeoning stupidity seems
to be utterly ubiquitous …
nevertheless … I continue
to wonder … I continue
to interview myself
posing enquiries
that continue to lead
to nebulous answers …

daveD.A. (David) Pratt “continues to continue” in a comfortably conventional community in Canada … he is genuinely concerned about the burgeoning stupidity that seems to be virtually everywhere …
