searching

~
Those I loved were gone
I sat in the darkest night
Afraid, not able to speak
Alone and helpless
~
At the darkest time
No hope on the horizon
Light broke in the dawn
~
To live was my decision
There was fire in my being
Mysterious energy
Coming from within
~
My search became real
The path began to open
The pain was universal
Everyone’s lot
All around there were others
Searching to find what was real
~
It is easy to escape
And medicate all the pain
That is what my parents did
And gave it to me
~
Was I to repeat
And give this to my children
I decided, “No!”
~
I found a community
Of people wanting to know
Seeking knowledge and insights
How to be human
~
Searching is the key
Being honest and fearless
Not afraid to ask questions
Even about death
We’re at different places
But at one in our seeking
