You Who Seek To Know Me - Poem by Mike Barrett

You who seek to know me
Don't look far,
I am not far.

You who seek to know me
Don't look deep
For I am shallow.

You who seek to know me
Don't trace out labyrinths,
For I am a simple path.

You who seek to know me
Know thy highest self -
It's there, it's then we'll meet!
