"....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

Can you keep a secret?
I've known all along
I need to forget
So I wrote it into a song

Don't tell no one 
I give it to you now
It might help ease
This void somehow

Keep it, it's now yours to keep
Don't hold onto it, it made me weep
I'm done hiding it, in that well too deep
Where none but only my thoughts could creep

Hidden wisdom, crouching shadow!

There is a part of you that exists
Somewhere within
Reaching into your future
Guiding you like an internal lighthouse

You falter, you waver
You surmise over what has been and what is going to be
You move on, you fall back
You compromise, you please

And yet again, no matter how much you try to shun it away
It follows you like an undetachable radar
Guiding you, Altering your path, Leading you right..

You waver once more, you have trust issues
You are unsure of what to follow
So you go back to the well woven path again
Things feel familiar, things feel right
So you stick on awhile out of fright
