  • The Pursuit of Something Lost

    Endless times the world I’d rewrite
    From nothing, for what else is nothing for
    A thousand battles I’d boldly fight
    And if I lost still thousands more

    Without knowing what it’d achieve
    Perhaps without knowing what I sought
    But ending there I couldn’t conceive
    Until came a pernicious little thought

    It walked under the guise of wisdom
    Teaching what it held I should know
    That some things will just never come
    That we should accept and let go

    There are winds we cannot alter
    And small wrenches we must endure
    Beliefs so reasonable I did falter
    Of my world I was no longer sure

    I wondered in silence when at long last
    Standing under the starry sky
    I found one word I couldn’t move past
    A half-forgotten song: Why

    At the very end of it all
    When the clouds are grey and dense
    When there are no more leaves to fall
    I’ll still have my innocence
