So Much Depends - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

So much depends so much wholly on you
And what you think is worth each effort and try
For this you must see in completeness and truth
Before you can no anything or why
Become the master of your own true fate
And find the best of every way you can
There is so much in such footsteps to grate
That gives completeness in its own true plan
But first you must be faithful to your own
To understand what is of worth and not
For none is harder to accept than this
As much of trust seems still much too unknown
To find it out and thus untie its knot
For everything turns to false for what it is
