"....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

Why live like this?
When you know you can change
Why drive life amiss?
When you can stop and re-arrange

Why turn away?
When you can turn around
Why miss a day?
When you can go forth and re-bound

Why shut yourself?
When you know you can resist
Why shun everything else?
When you believe, you can persist

Why should you flip?
When you see what you want
Why follow and trip?
When you can re-write every font

Why not live like this?
Being what you want to be
Why not start living like this?
And as free as a bird be...
