i just feel

Knowing and feeling are two different things, and feeling is what counts.
— francois lelord, hector and the search for happiness

I've spent my life knowing by feeling
The two are not separate for me
there is no dichotomy or paradox

Until I try to explain myself
to another
to someone who knows by knowing
by convincing self with knowledge

I have knowledge
I am smart and endlessly curious
I always want to know

I am guided by
What I feel
A deep-soul knowing
that lacks strong definition

How do you draw the wind
How do you give form
to that which you cannot

What I feel
May not be easily understood
But it can be trusted
