The Nature of Things

Behaving in a manner true to oneself

  Even if no one else approves

    In this life, one thing is certain

      No one can really ever walk in your shoes

         Great are the mysteries before us 

Having bled and willing to bleed

   Unleashing it all in a chorus

      Music for all who have ears

        Actions will always speak louder

          No more shall I live in fear

A true statement of purpose!
I think there are definite levels of self discovery or revelation, in life and these may be dictated by time or experience or moments of clarity.
It's almost as if as we age we go from a stage of knowing nothing, to having some very clear ideas of how the world works to realising that actually, we're just learning how we work, if that makes sense.
And in the end perhaps you realise that you don't know what life is going to do to you, only what you're going to do about it.
Not sure if that does make sense, but it makes sense to me.
