On the outside, we imagine ourselves looking in
But too many times we can’t get past the surface
To see what lies within and the potential
Of what can be if only we allow ourselves
To become part of the equation
Of getting what we want.
As we travel the peaks and valleys
On the journey to understanding
We must realize that to know everything
Is nothing and to have faith in the process
Might mean to accept that the road might be longer
And that road might be a different one
Than the one on which we started.
