Wittgenstein

You were a soldier, a genius and a saint,

but a few things you could not explain;

Why do words have no meaning,

when it comes down to a feeling?

And you know it is true,

that black will never be blue.

You let some years go by

and decided it’s all a lie.

But that of which one can not speak,

makes us whole and stole your sleep.

You came back to give us all a break.

Took away our doubts by showing our mistakes.

Words were made unable to deceive

and truth became clear and easy to receive.

The reign of logic came to an end.

You were a teacher, a nurse and a friend.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
