"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

The Eyes Of Truth


when we will have tried
all the limits of this life
we turn to silence
when we exhaust all the paths
we become quiet and wise

when we have lived all
the pains and sorrows of life
we become stronger
and we look deep inside us
to see through the eyes of truth

  8. Pretty poem. Has the odd circumstance for me of having read it (and the positive side of silence) right after “no more talk”. Polar opposites.
