A Vain Season Is Coming

The day we found out
Our lives were like a 
moving novel
Constantly weaving in and 
out the threads of our years.
Sometimes when the night closes its
windows, I stumble across you
when you are full of laughter and 
revenge, oh my God you say
Because nothing that resembles 
our lords creatures is afraid of you.
I pray the rosarys like you scim through
scriptures, looking for that other sign
Beside the ones I've found already.
Could it be? 
We search to much.

    Yes, I do believe sometimes we "search too much," becoming so introspective we cannot find the joy in life. Well done, Derrick! Love, Carolyn

    Very thought provoking, Derrick. And, yes, I do believe we spend too much time searching. Sometimes when we think we'll find answers, we find only more questions. Excellent poem!
