Instructions For Wayfarers

They will declare: Every journey has been taken.
You shall respond: I have not been to see myself.
They will insist: Everything has been spoken.
You shall reply: I have not had my say.

They will tell you: Everything has been done.
You shall reply: My way is not complete.

You are warned: Any way is long, any way is hard.
Fear not. You are the gate – you, the gatekeeper.
And you shall go through and on . . .

—Alexandros Evangelou Xenopouloudakis,

    “…We are born coming in here.” He pointed. We wander on, never quite knowing exactly when we found the center and have started back the way we came. Finally we come out here.” He pointed. “We die.”

    Have you ever thought
    that the voice you’ve been
    waiting to hear is your own?
