Looking for Truth Somewhere Else

The answers we seek are not found in the external word exclusively, but pair with an internal unity and sense of purpose.

Looking for Truth Somewhere Else

Jigsaw life in the middle
searching for the edge pieces
but there's always some missing.
Unearthing wedged in species
fossils always incomplete.

And I swear I saw the light
diffracted and bent around
actors off stage right.
How I'd wear that slight gown.

Clothed in knowledge
adorned in courage
wrapped in that swaddling
heavenly burden.

Sights set far
traversing stars
in leaps and bounds
til peace is found.

But how did I get so far away?
My body walked on, yet here I stay.
Under a sun slowly rising,
memories, like clouds gather and fade.

Nice work, I think it is something we can feel inside of us that pushes us to write and you do it so well.

We search far and wide for purpose and meaning but should look inwards too to get our bearings right - siva
