I am not said
Not told, unread
A thing you must conquer
In the dark all alone
You can not see me
Every day you figure some out
But you will never know it all
I am unseen, unheard
Yet I lie around every corner
Obvious yet hidden
You seek me
You ask for me
Yet I’m everywhere
Not making a sound
No matter how long I wait
I’ll never be found

All my life I've looked at words as if I were seeing them for the first time. ~Ernest Hemingway

Hm. Interesting choice of words. It was short and powerful all in it's own way.
