I’ve been searching, always searching for a long, long time

As the years be moving on, and my hair is turning grey

As I’m almost on the countdown for my day of truth to come

I’ve been searching, always searching since the day I first begun.

I sought a man of wisdom

And I asked him where it’s at.

He said “my man it’s simple

But you won’t find it like that.

You have seen too many answers 

In those many books you’ve read

Yet the truth be live and breathing

As the words be old and dead.”

“You must move into your closet and you must close that door

And let the silence fill you, let it seep into your core.

You must leave the crowd behind you let it go with all it’s din

Then the truth in all it’s beauty may fill you deep within“.

Written 1996.

    wow, that is really nice. Those last few lines are so cool. They used to teach us that in church, to leave the crowd and pray where it is peaceful!!

    Thank you so much Andrea. All spiritual teachings speak of meditation, only in the Christian take on things, prayer is the meditation. Jesus tells us to go into our closet which is our inner self and pray. Good words to live by. Once again I appreciate your comments....Peter
