You’re asking who knows the truth.

--

One may move so well that a foot-print never shows. -Lao Tzu


Step into the corner of night, the edge of the blue-steel future, 

step into those things that you have hoped for, but haven't said. 


You are a field left fallow, an unanswered question, a small slice 

of winter that was hidden and saved for the long, slow heat of summer. 


Where are your foot-prints now? What is it that you have hidden, 

buried deep somewhere? How will you move at all, so badly wounded? 


You are the sum and total of your every experience, your every thought. 

And this is the boat of your life, slicing through a choppy, shallow bay, 


the dog that just walked away, the river that laughed at the bayou 

and went where it wanted to go, the sun that burned and ravaged the land.


Step into the corner of night, the edge of the blue-steel future, 

step into those things that you have hoped for, but never said. 


You wanted to know the truth? Friend, the truth is inside of you.

You are the only one who ever knew the truth.
