Well, isn't THAT a search,
a quest, a journey,
a lifetime's task:
the very truth of you.
The intensity of the hunt
as you proceed through your life.
Some years it has so little importance
that you aren't even aware that
there's something to seek.
You simply go about your daily tasks
as if they alone constituted living.
(and am I wrong to say that
there are more of them the older you get?)
you chase that self—
the very truth of you—
as if your life depended on it.
As it may.
And then there are those few,
blessed from birth,
who know their very truth
from the beginning
and who can thus devote their lives
not to searching
but to simple gratitude.
