We have What’s Needed by Larry Eberhart

Within us all is something from without.
Without a doubt there’s much I can adduce,
adduce some things for you to think about.
About our doubts we have a real excuse.
Excuse me when I claim man’s not correct,
correct in thinking gods must be required.
Requiring dogma leaves a disconnect-
a substitute for answers much desired.
Desiring knowledge is, and must remain –
remain a trait to which we must attend.
Attend to learning; try not to complain.
Complaining sigh won’t help us to contend-
contend with knowing, “How’d it all begin”.
Begin assured, we’ve all we need within
