"....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

Lost key....

Rummaging my attic
I found a lost key
That had just lain there static
Through all the years I was born to see

It looked ancient
And yet in the light shone
A brooding darkness that was patient
Through every tragedy it had borne

It lay there plain
Bringing me a sense of calm
That I had only left to gain
As soon as I held it in my palm

It belonged to this lock
That had always been there
In front of every stumbling block
I was only too scared to look where

The key had found me
And all I had to do was unlock
Every fear to make me free
To lift my barriers as one flock

Only then, did I realize
What I wanted to undo, was long undone
The key taught me in disguise
T’is beyond locks and barriers, I must run

It’s the path I’ve chosen
That has earned me this
As I leave the past frozen
Not a moment, I’d want to miss

For neither locks nor keys, ever exist
It’s all in my mind
Fear only persists, the more I resist
Until the lost key, I happened to find!
