A map without a legend

Have you seen me,

recently?

I can’t seem to find my

way.

I went looking for my

purpose.

I yearned to feel

complete.

Have you seen me,

I looked far, far and

I climbed high, high then dug

I searched inside, inside and

today?

I went searching in

books.

I plunged forgotten

nooks.

I yearned for what was

Have you seen me,

anyway?

 

I’m so very lost.

 

I’m just hoping you’ve seen

some part of me.

Something to guide back to

a normal place.

I’m just hoping there’s

a trace,

And a reason to make a

case.

 

To try to find myself again.

 

Humbly yours,

J

Once proud, now […]

Happen to or happen for?

Things, quite simply, are going to happen. They will happen without our knowledge. They will occur beyond our scope or perception. Things, events, and circumstances, will continuously occur. Of the trillions upon trillions of these events that happen, every day, to billions of human beings, some will affect us. What we have in our power, […]
