"....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

Not then
I did not
Not now
I know not
Now on

Through thick and thin
No fear
Burning bright within
It hurt
Quite a lot
Turned dirt
As I fought
Tried not
