Inquiry



What is the consequence of being remarkable?

Does awareness of causation lead to cessation?

How can poison taste so pretty and medicine so bitter?

Why am I alone in this city?

Who is narrating this underrated biography?

Does this experience need a reason, objective, mission or cause?

When does one's reflection show no flaws?

Can fruition be canned for use during the lean times?

Why is the journey poignant and the destination unclear?

Can I really fake it I indefinitely?

Without an ego to present, who do I really represent?

If I could define for what I am envious of, could I figure out what I really want?

Can global warming hurry up and warm my heart?

Why is the path luminous, streetlights non-functioning and detours emblazoned neon?

When is synchronicity on time and perdition tardy?

Just how long is the road to redemption?
