Searching Beyond


Must drink holy water.
Must open eyes in wonder.
Must follow special list.
Must remember what I missed.

Do you agree, silently?
Do you see the riddle inside of me?
Do you keep some things to yourself?
So, you put your feelings on the shelf?

Come, and go to the end,
All we know and comprehend.
Capture moments in grief and bliss.
Become all that you dreamed of this.

Let’s detach and rev it up.
Let’s tidy up, then pee in a cup.
Are you well-formed, cute little pup?
Or are you little, sneaky and totally messed up?

Holding hands in a circle, now.
Closing in, they take a vow.
Guess what I have on my mind.
What you seek is what you’ll find.

  1. Shared sentiments. Many times folks want us to walk Lock-step like Stepford Wives or Robots because it gives them comfort. Conformity and Uniformity brings a sense of security to those afraid of difference or change. Many times I have the same thoughts you voice in this poem. You have read my mind.
