love’s function is to fabricate unknownness- e.e. cummings

love’s function is to fabricate unknowness


(known being wishless;but love,all of wishing)

though life’s lived wrongsideout,sameness chokes oneness

truth is confused with fact,fish boast of fishing


and men are caught by worms (love may not care

if time totters,light droops,all measures bend

nor marvel if a thought should weigh a star

—dreads dying least;and less,that death should end)


how lucky lovers are (whose selves abide

under whatever shall discovered be)

whose ignorant each breathing dares to hide

more than most fabulous wisdom fears to see


(who laugh and cry)who dream,create and kill

while the world moves;and every part stands still.

I’m learning how much I have to learn, how little I know, how fragile my understanding is. I’m learning to be thankful and patient… Today is all that we will ever have in this life. If we spend our time obsessing with the future or regretting the past then we will never live. Tomorrow will always be tomorrow and yesterday cannot be changed. The wise man seeks God in the now and brings both his regrets and fears before Him. The freedom that we are offered is truly amazing: to live, today, free from even our own fallen desires. This is where I want to be.

I carry your heart with me - e.e.cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
