RISKING IT ALL

When all the world feels lost,
When all the feelings are cold,
There is but one thing to trust
It is that which binds and holds.
 
To name such a thing is truth,
Holding onto the truth is a lie;
It glides into the world unknown
Maintaining an essence, a cry.
 
Surrounded by the faith of all
That the world is yet to come
Hides us from this present truth.
Beyond us all a silence, numb.
 
In all our connecting hearts
Sounds this pulse of truth:
Hidden from us in our words.
Without any shred of proof.
