To express one's self

Is a very hard duty

Yet the need to know

Is stronger than steel

How can I know if I love?

Only by deed done

This poem originated as a simple expression of fulfillment and what is the essence of this condition of existence. Only if we are seeking the truth through the need to know, can we achieve universal fulfillment and personal satisfaction with ourselves.
