"....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

Wake me up...

The lyrics of the song 'Wake me up' by Avicii that inspired this poem..

It took awhile to realise
What this was,
That wasn't over

A step ahead
A step back
A hiccup of fear
I knew it clear

I took my time
With every line
On a canvas I drew
The thoughts words threw

In paradise I found 
A nestling heart
Beating unfelt
A trickster, I let melt

Those words are breaking free
Like leaves from a clinging tree
They fly around as they please
Touching the ground without a crease..
