I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

14 12 2011

My thanks to U2 for the title.

I’ve torn through walls

I’ve walked the Earth

A thousand times

But I still haven’t found

What I’m looking for

I’ve trekked foreign sands

And nursed sore, callous hands

I’ve lost myself in an endless wood

And I have stood at the top

Of this world

As the sun began to climb

But I still haven’t found

What I’m looking for

I’ve washed up on a sandy shore

And watched an emaciated child

Sob for just one crumb more

I’ve shut my eyes

At prejudice’s ugly rise

I will never find what I’m looking for

But join me, friend

And together we’ll search to whatever end

And find what we are looking for

Together, we will find what we are looking for
the key to knowledge is only through this door 🙂

I believe your inner poet has been awakened.

Haha, well thank you 🙂 I was never really that great at it, but I guess you got to start somewhere right?

Of course! When I look back on some my first poetry (which my pride will never allow me to post on here) it’s hard to believe how much I have improved.
