We Lose Ourselves Too Easily


Too easily,
we lose ourselves
in attempt to find
someone else,
who ultimately
never asked us to.

We end up
losing pieces
of ourselves,
trying to
connect the ones
that don’t fit.

You’ll come to find,
the reason for
your question
does not always lie
in your answer.
It’s the desire
to know
what we search for,
when we already know
where it is.

And too often,
we zoom far in
when we should just
on what’s
not behind us.
