What I never said

I never said change was difficult
Yet would tilt the scale in favour
When confronted at dawn
Because it is the reason for the morning
And the terms of the engagement

I never said I bear an insatiable
Desire to know even the unknown
Relinquishing every weight
To attend to the weightier matters
While I respond to the call

I never said what I desire now
Tomorrow I would look with disdain
And not dance even to the tune that
Awakened the spirit of the Cushite
Leaving the singer to wonder

I never said growing daily
Is my only preoccupation
And climbing along with you
Is my earnest prayer
Lest I lose the love of my youth
And the innocent soul who loves no one
