A Poem I Wrote

This is just something I wrote today. Hope you enjoy it.

Seek not the answers in that place,
From which society pulls away at your grace,
While looking for the answers in the dark,
Unsure of the journey you should embark

Seek not the answers through the flesh,
The sheets in color and of soft mesh,
For the solutions you will find in the skin,
Will only tear your soul from within

Seek not the answers in the pages,
The experience of those felt through the ages,
For most of the wisdom you will find,
Is that of someone else’s mind

Seek answers from within the heart,
The piece that had been with you from the start,
It is the only guidance you will need,
To give you a life, one that you shall lead

    When you have found the answers from within,
    You will realize that more questions begin
    A cycle of searches for wisdom throughout
    The process of inquiry, within and without.
