Knowledge of another

is limited

by what they choose to reveal


Yet what remains


also provides clues


Neither of us have shown

all that we are


Heck, I am still striving for self-honesty

You, you do not want to explore

for fear of being vulnerable


Such a paradigm it is:

weakness is a strength

Yet, that knowledge must come first-hand


Do I have the strength to remain weak

for as long as your journey takes?

One day at a time, the wheel of life continues to turn


It is my choice, you cannot drive me away;

Yet I do not cling


You are free

to make your choices as well . . .

You keep coming back.
