The Search

The Search

1 min 14K 1 min 14K

Amidst the maze

Below the sky


In the clutches of her question

Lay a girl, all lost


Her eyes were in tears

And heart in pain


She was fragile

Her feet lost pace


The answers she was searching

Were nowhere to be found


No trace of them

Made her whine


With all that she had

She’d commenced with the search


The search that might have

Had altered her world


Her peace, her soul

Her heart, her mind


Were all entwined

The roots of the questions


Had a firm grip on her

To slacken the grip


The answers were must

She walked and walked


Interrogated every shrub

Alas! It yielded no result


Not a single bug was ready to answer

It seemed they all had something


Pending against her

The rivers, the vales


The trees, the maze

All were quite like the winter sky


Her sobs and heartbeats

Were the only sounds that prevailed


When she was ‘bout to bid goodbye

She saw a light shining so bright


With all her might

She started again


And reached the spot

Where the light once shone


There stood a tree

Tall and firm


Engraved upon its bark

Was just a single word


She wiped her tears

And spelled the word


PATIENCE


Inspiration came

She thought to herself


“Be strong and bold

And wait with a smile


For no question in the world

Goes ignored”


Enlightened and stronger than before

She left with a smile


The search has indeed

Changed her world
