LET ME LOOK BENEATH
For secrets, for things untold and things unseen,
let me find the silence in all the noise. I go now.
There, where I was is an empty void. Here, where
I stand now, is a plentiful opposition, a richness
striking back at all things : I have your heart.
I want your soul.
Do not think the empty man does not recognize this.
The secret words resound within him or her too -
they know without saying that what they have
within is stronger than what they have without.
That is what Life is like.
