To be the watcher and the watched,

Which comes first?

Is it a curse or a gift,

A curse it surely is...


Wisdom the watcher has,

But not tongue to speak it,

Gall the watched has,

But not intelligence to use it.


The wise mind is the wizened,

Speaking in whispers,

Only audible to the watched when it becomes the watcher,

And vice versa,

Unity only reached in under the cloak of solitude.


How it must burn,

To know but not act,

To act with precision but not accuraccy

Wisdom of the penitent and fool's courage.

What a match...
