"....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

Finding my way...

I hear a voice inside
It persuades me to abide
By every will untold
To change into a pot of gold

I head towards a pretty road
That unscathed welcomes me aboard
It shows me the path ahead
That I could have easily missed instead

I feel the wind pass by
It halts to rest with a sigh
I ask if all it does is just blow?
It answers: “Just the way you deserve it - Either crazy, fast or slow!”

Still unsure, I sit under a tree for sometime
Which beneath it’s shade makes me feel sublime
It knows I’m lost and gently points the way
I get up and tread on in the direction it did sway

I realize that there’s  a storm coming
I waste no time and keep running
I yell, asking why upon me it had to befall
It winks back saying: “To show you your destination to which you need crawl.”

Puffing  and panting I climb up high and dry
Thunder and lightning tear open the skies to cry
Shivering I look around as the rain hits my face
Only to see the trail ahead wiped out without a trace

I wait in silence for some calm
Hugging myself with bare white knuckled palms
A wandering mind quenched by the roar within
Comes to a standstill as I understand it’s true rhythm

It’s all bright now, as if the gale and squall had ceased to exist
I soak myself in the sunbeam impossible to resist
The sun smiles at me as I sense the truth upon me dawn
I’d never have reached so far if it weren’t for the wind and rainstorm.
