The silence is deafening
As you wait for a sweet symphony.
You bend until you are ready to break.
You’’re on your hands and knees
Searching desperately
For that moment of clarity.
You think that you’’re falling forever.
But then you hit the ground running.
And in that moment,
You find out that it’’s worth
Finding a different kind of perfect.
You realize that you’’ve been
Spending all this time
Looking for the answer,
When you should have been
Asking a different question.
