Exploring myriad twists
within this Gordian knot
Convoluted patterns conceal
life’s indeterminate plot.

Left to its unfolding,
clues in their own time.
Finding what we need, not want,
as we spiritually climb.

Words I cannot utter
chafe to burst unbidden
Silence painfully endured,
feelings I keep hidden.

Following a different direction
I search beyond the fray.
I ask myself constantly,
if there is anything I can say.
