Searching

“What are you searching for?”
I ask him.
As if I am not.
As if I have searched, found,
and resigned myself.

WHAT ARE YOU SEARCHING FOR?

He tells me peace of mind.
And I think: you can’t have both!

searching and peace of mind
wanting and peace of mind
expecting and peace of mind
desire and peace of mind

I know.
Seek and ye shall find:

Chaos
Confusion
Convolution

WHAT ARE YOU SEARCHING FOR?

Resignation.
