darling, there is nothing I can tell you.
of all the knowledge mankind cloaks itself with
there is none so frightening as this -
that you are the future of the world.

i will walk down forbidden paths
as youth, as woman, as promise
i will find the ways in which i am fooled
fooled once, fooled twice; and shame on us all
i will find faith where people have stopped looking
and purpose where they say there is none

down a road alone
who will come with me?
