We shall see
Following the path of curiosity is fine.
I've followed paths of intrigue and I've followed every sign,
And here I stand, bedazzled, abstract; less and less in love
With the things I chose to follow like the olive bearing dove.

PhD still cooking – it can't tell me who I am.
It's not a simple task for me.  It's not green eggs and ham.
So now I must surrender to the truth that says it's here.
I must swim through my uncertainty and do the dance with fear.

I am not friends with grief, thought I've felt a lot of pain.
Some of it made sense to me and some... I can't explain.
I guess I'm getting ready to surrender to the grace
Of the Universe that wants to climb inside and fill the space.

We shall see...

Poetic portrait for a man on the edge of surrender

This was a poetic portrait written for a visitor to my Fig2  solo exhibition at the ICA in January 2015.
