What Do You Seek…

What do you see,

in the vastness of the universe?

Do you look out for hope, faith

or money?

Or for the fireflies 

lighting their bodies 

in the dark corners of the forest?

Do you believe in magic

or in the chemical called 

Love?

Do you want to get lost

Or to find yourself 

in the face of defeat?

Do you wait,

for the rain to cleanse you

or do you drench yourself,

in the sorrow of your own tears?

What do you seek, 

from the universe,

The pain of discipline,

or the agony of regret?

  1. It seemed bright heading, but the end lines were depressing. Why won’t we seek better things in the universe- love, caring, sharing, contributing…
    Or over it, we could seek whom we really are. Where we came from.
    Why should we voluntarily find more pain?
