Quietly waiting
I sit and clown around
As I wait to be found

The pain I feel
Only time will heal
As I wait to be found

Tears run down
A shiver deep with in
As I wait to be found

Smiles and laughter
Looking as if nothing is wrong
As I wait to be found

Here I am
Can't you see
As I wait to be found

Still lost and alone
As I wait to be found

It must be only to others you're lost to. Certainly not to yourself?   If you don't find yourself, how will others do it?  
Thoughtful work here.

*wow* this was a powerfully written work of art. i am still mulling over it. i loved the repetition of the verse "as i wait to be found". the words of this poem i related to very well. i think that at one time or another we all feel sorta lost and are just clinging onto hope that...something or someone will find us and we can go back to being our former self? just a thought i had.

take care,
amy
