Unfinished

Now that I have taught

my tongue

to speak what is in

my heart.

I now must find

the one who will listen.

 

Now that I have looked

long enough

to finally see.

I now must find

the one who will understand.

 

Now that I have walked

this valley

and reached the

mountaintop.

I now must find

the place I started from.

 

Now that I have learned

to love

and

to lay down my arms.

I now must find

the one who I can hold on to.

 

Now that I have drank up

life’s bounty

and eaten my fill.

I now must find

the will to feed others.

 

Your life, my life, his life

is never finished

merely abandoned.

Know what you do not know

and you will complete

the circle

and stand where

you’ve always stood.
