“Can you love what you do not know?”

Standard

I shall ask these questions 
As if they were mine 
“What is this faith?”
Or “who is the Divine?”

I will ask these questions 
Which resides in every breath
“Whose words were these?”
And “who dictates our death?”

All of these questions shall I ask 
So that I may know every corner of my heart 
My own beating heart 
To understand surrender 
And loving the unknown 

And soon the question shall be less of 
“Can you love what you do not know?”
But rather …

“What more is there to love?”
