Where We Go…

 

Why do we try so hard for
everything to be so easy
so simple it becomes
complicated; too difficult
to understand to own to
have to hold like the hand
in our hand the smile we
see the wind that soothes
the song that floats as we
wander through our lives

Why do we ask for things
we don’t want can’t use
aren’t able to understand
when what we do have
sits unused in our feelings
in our souls in our minds
while the sight we once
had the focus the vision
scatters before the wind of
want desire confusion

Trying and wanting are
signs of how lost we are
where we go when we
don’t know where to go

Why do we ask questions
that have no answers we
know have no answers yet
knocking on the door, we
tap on the window looking
for lights burning, for
occupation…we push
push push toward that
destination always knowing
always knowing

Why do we disbelieve what
we know is true, we know
can’t be anything else but
like gravity water pain death
facts tattooed on our lives
our dreams our today and
tomorrow…we look away
stare blindly at what is in
front if us never seeing what
we could see if we could see

Asking and disbelieving are
signs of how lost we are
where we go when we
don’t know where to go

Trying and wanting
asking and disbelieving
where we go when we
don’t know where to go
