​Trying To Find
For the past few weeks
I’ve been asking questions 

Trying to unhinge the door

Leading to a particular direction 

The queries to the universe 

Have answers that vary

Floating around behind

So much that had scared me 

Breaking down the barriers 

I had built up so deep inside

Was revelation of potential 

From which I tried to hide 

The elements of tenderness 

That helps to nurture progress

Had been one imperative 

From which I did digress

Many of the intricate places

Where my life tends to lead

Will only open up these eyes 

To what love alone reveals

Everything surrounding that

Has had me very absent lately

I’ve just been trying to find back

The faith I once had in me
