looking for it

Sometimes I can’t find it, even for years, and then there it is.

A great and happy surprise which gives justification for my constant searching.

I stumble around in the darkness searching for the next thing.

But I am not wasting time on doo dads. What I am doing is searching for

my most important thing. Can I see what it is all about? What will I do

to step out? I will read and think and write. I am looking for efficiency.

I will recover. I will draw my boundaries and I will lobby with basic self interest.

Reason is a wonderful thing. Infusing passion now so that I don’t sink into complacency.

What if I could get the endowment? What if, what if I could, like a bird, obtain and

digest, the berries from every fruited tree. I am looking for a life to live.

    Finding it can be a truly amazing thing! I have some thoughts on how it came to be & I would loved to hear what you think. If not, still a great poem! #NOTHINGMatters, but what’s in You!
