Nothing changes

the importance
of life
has always been questioned

ascertaining an understanding
of life
is millennia+ old

the knowledge and wisdom
of life
has always been grasped

but only by the ones who dare examine it

      1. Some people, and some kind of wisdom, (whatever wisdom is, for each and everyone, and whatever wisdom helps to accomplish) .

        This is not a critique to you Susi. I haven’t read your books and i won’t dare to make a a critique. However, i pay attention to the words. Don’t you find “Grasped” a bit too much ?

      2. I didn’t take it as a criticism, just trying to clarify what you meant. No, actually I don’t find that it’s a bit too much when the definition of grasped is that you “understand, make sense of , comprehend”. Many things comprise life and getting a handle on those things requires a person determined to invest and be diligent by going for truth. I know many people actively do this, so yes, I find it the appropriate word to use.
