Have you ever looked for something or somebody?
For so long
That you started thinking you will never get it
When you least expect it
You actually find what you have been looking for
How did you feel at that moment?
At that time
Was your mind all over the place?
Were you wondering?
Did the cat bite out your tongue?
When you took a moment
To catch your breath
How did you feel?
Did your recover your “tongue successfully from the cat’s tummy”?
There was this one question
That simply would not leave your mind
“How the hell did I not see this”?
Or simply put,
Where have you been all this while?
Where was my head all this while?
What was I thinking all this time?
To know that I have been looking and yet, you were here the whole entire time
I have been searching for it everywhere
And it was right here, the whole time
So stupid of me…to look under the floor
Yet, it was in my pocket the whole time
How could I have missed this?
Well, this time around
We look to those times in our lives
When this has happened to us
That is, me and you
Let us start with those moments involving human beings
The people we love
Many times, we search and look for those people we don’t really want
And end up totally ignoring the best there is
Those are right in front of us, the whole time
Sometimes, they even help us with our “searches”
How sad can that be?
Do we even get to care how they felt?
About us that whole time
We simply keep chasing and chasing after what seems doesn’t want to be caught, don’t we?
When we get to see very clearly
What they stand for in our lives
We realize we have missed out on the very best life has to offer
Hopefully, it is not too late for regret!
Let us get to material things, hhmmm
How do we do on that end?
Pretty much, the same way
Only that this time, it hurts quite more in that moment
That is because
What we are looking for
Is considered very small or tiny by many people
Like a coin or a key or a small piece of paper
You are thinking…. “the audacity!!! How could I look for you all this while as you were quiet?”
If there is anything that I have mastered in this life
It is that in any event
I simply have to look close
Like RIGHT THERE, damn it!!!!!
Okay….here is a clue; the apple does not fall far from the tree
~ I truly hope you find what you are looking for ~
