Always searching for something,
never really knowing what it is,
knowing I must find it,
seems never ending,
wishing it could be easier,
knowing it could not be,
always asking where can I find,
where can it be,
I know it is out there,
wishing to be found,
maybe I should stop looking,
maybe it will get tired of hiding,
maybe it will come find me,

I feel lost,
I feel without,
I am in need,
in distress,
I need to be found,
will it ever find me,
I give up,
maybe it was not meant to be,
maybe I will live and die without ever really knowing,

no I canít give up,
it would not be me,
I must strive to find it,
I know it is out there just waiting for me.

Jeffry, Searching....
I have read several of your poems and I promise I will read them all.

You ask many questions. You seem to be searching and self writing is very good to do. I'd like you to tell me what you are doing as you write these.

Perhaps trying to sleep and you can't, you toss and turn with these thoughts of turmoil running through your mind, making you feel like you are losing your mind.

You seem to be searching for your place. We all need to belong. In life's travels we travel many roads before we find what seems to be searching for us.

For my personal reasons I am intrigued with your writing I want to learn more about you. Perhaps its my history, my brothers lost in a world of drugs and all their losses combined makes for books and books of poetry. Even all my own experiences. I sense I am MUCH older than you are and I feel some need in your words.

I hope you continue to branch out with your writing Jeff.

Again, I will be reading more of you. Thanks for posting and sharing your world.
