In Search Of Me

"Nothing is found except it is hidden.
Nothing is hidden except it is a treasure."
In me is a talent waiting to be discovered;
The very gift that makes me priceless.
In me is a voice waiting to be heard,
Food for those whose mind hunger for 
knowledge.
My little light is waiting to shine bright
Upon a world clouded with darkness and 
confusion.
I am on a journey in search of me
On a quest to know the essence for my 
being.
The search will never end until there's no 
more hidden place.
The digging continues until the depth is 
within reach.
With these eyes I shall look beyond the 
obvious.
And with my ears listen beyond what is 
spoken.
Though the road is unknown yet I will 
venture
Better to die searching than to retreat 
and live a lie.
My instinct and inner light shall guide me
My faith and hope shall sustain me
Until the hidden me is revealed for the 
world to see
I will never give up on this search for the 
priceless me.

    Hello SKAT, thanks for welcoming me. You know, it's really been a wow experience since I joined poetry soup two-days ago after a friend invited me (omotehinse kemisola). And I bet that having you as a friend and fan will definitely inspire me learn more and as well write more. The summary about me is that: "Ebenezer is an introvert who engages in poetry/poetic writing, public speaking, social work & youth development. A featured writer, book editor, blogger, and largely known the 'gentle' guy with a 'smiling' face -- Gent2smile (my nickname).
