What Cannot Be

See what cannot be seen
know what cannot be known
dream what cannot be dreamed 
and show what cannot be shown

love what cannot be loved
hold what cannot be held
say what should not be said
dwell on what should not be dwelled

be what you cannot
yet stay who you are
stay close to your heart
yet travel quite far

if you can do this 
then you have succeeded
and better then that
you have excceeded

you have gone beyond 
what is expected
what should be done
is what you have perfected

keep an open mind 
and see with your heart
if you're not doing this now
then I suggest that you start
