Knowledge of another
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.
