The concept behind this poem is someone who is searching for their true self. I often find that I lose myself in work, stress, family, or school. I wrote this to represent the struggle to continue being myself.
Although for me this poem is about finding yourself, it may touch on a different feeling for you. I hope that someone can relate to this writing or find their own meaning behind it.
Please enjoy all comments are greatly appreciated
I search for you
Through the chaos of this life
I long to see your smiling face staring back at me
Every day I wait for you
Have you disappeared with no return?
I am here
Behind a mask of sorrow
Trying to break free from the chains that bind me
Every day I see you searching in the mirror
You cannot find me there, for I am no longer the person you see
I will search for you
Down the deepest ocean to the highest peak
You are not lost, but deep within
I shall work until you are free of burdens that hide you from me
I am here
