"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

It's not about...

It’s not about moving on
Or forgetting so fast
It’s not about feeling tight
Or regretting the past

It’s not about tumbling over
Or going through hell
It’s not about thinking crazy
Or the one thing you can’t spell

It’s not about just being happy
Or beating time
It’s not about feeling less burdened
Or trying to mime

It’s not about just saying it over and over
Or just keeping quiet
It’s not about reminding yourself
Or expecting what might….

It’s not about hiding oneself
Or showing your strength
It’s not about speaking out
Or walking an unbeatable length

It’s not about wanting to know
Or just being in the dark
It’s not about understanding somehow
Or making your mark

It’s not about meeting once too often
Or looking in the eye
It’s not about staying away
Or breathing a sigh

It’s not about playing around
Or just feeling helpless
It’s not about trying to guess
Or just being reckless

It’s not about being free
Or making it happen
It’s not about finding yourself
Or getting yourself dampen

It’s not about crying out loud
Or listening to that sound
It’s not about waging a war
Or trying to stay aground

It’s not about me writing this way
Or running away
It’s not about me learning to pray
For what the future might lay……….
