I want to unfold.
I don’t want to stay folded anywhere,
because where I am folded, there I am a lie.
I want my grasp of things to be true.
I want to describe myself like a painting that I
looked at closely for a long time,
like a saying that I finally understood,
like a ship that carried me through
the wildest storm of all.
- Rainer Mara Rilke
