“Where to Now?” – BGC, 03 May 2017

i remember
the glow
on your
face
the sparkle
in your
eyes
as we
spoke
of faraway
places
and adventures
everywhere
those nights
in early
summer
filled with
song
so unaware
of the
darkness
of the
anger
to come.

you’ve
trekked your
paths
climbed your
mountains;
but let
me ask:
have you
found
what you
lost
have you
found
what you
sought
or does
your life
remain
empty and
barren and
broken?

and i
who stayed
behind
am out
and about
on journeys
of my
own:
and i
fly
and i
walk
and i
ride
through the
world
asking questions
giving answers
gaining knowledge
giving back
finding meaning
in things
in people
in places
you scoffed
at
as mundane
as plain
as common.

but:
unlike you
i’ve found
my meaning
i’ve found
my faith
yet still
i pray
you would
someday
somehow
find yours.
