Understanding can only be created out of MIS-understanding,
that is why I accept opposition.

I create only in darkness,
all else is BEHIND me,
that is why I can accept loneliness.

Do you know where I am?
of course not,
but I know where YOU are,
I have walked there,
I am leaving a trail.

Do you wish to follow your OWN trail?
That is the trail I am leaving.

I know you cannot understand me,
that is my burden,
I carry it well.

I am a tree heavy laden with fruit,
still there is a grace about my branches
that speaks of an endurance
far beyond the knowledge of man

Catch me if you can
