endless searches
seldom find
answers,
sought spontaneously
by the heart
or mind,

distractions galore
sprinkled
at every step,
focus lost
as eyes
get ensnared,

while
the answer
awaits
patiently,
the loyal
seeker’s steps,

the true arrow
flies
straight,
in ignorance
of the tempting
winds,

to have
and to hold,
is easier said,
answers found
are questions
themselves,

this journey itself
is an endless one,
each stop tests
the focus,
the strength
of the onward steps.

absolve me
of all the
stand up acts
that don’t
match with
your own
stripes,

you point
a finger
at the colors
on my coat,
that seem
to offend
your eyes,

i too
never
understood,
the straight lines
of black and white
that so adorn
your hide,

but then
who am I
to judge,
the patterns
on anyone
else’s back,

most are given
without
a choice,
and some
just learn
to adapt
to the tide.
