The Search

image
Shadow Painting by Joyce Ann Burton-Sousa

He searched,

And he panicked

For a life of his own

For the life that he claimed

Was dull in its tone

Is he living?

or just alive?

These remain to be seen

As he hides behind loneliness

And unlively things

He frequents his lows

And avoids all highs

dodges the how’s

And deletes all why’s

This is all life offers?

He’s searching once again

But the external efforts,

Explain why searching is within
