enlightenment

i hold forth nothing more than open arms
only truth with brace and bind
glances gaze away as if grasp the sight
to learn is to forget while to know is to remember,
only truth will brace and bind
my form is weighed with patience
to learn is to forget while to know is to remember,
recalling an image that shines as it hides
my form is weighed with patience 
glances gaze away as if to grasp the sight
recalling an image that shines as it hides
i hold forth nothing more than open arms
