Misplaced things

plank-729441_1280

I once wrote about a place
That was neither here nor there
A place found between the realms
Of hope and despair

And in that in-between place
I remember finding what I’d lost
Yet finding that place
Came with innumerable costs

And I wonder now
If it was all worth it in the end
For finding what I’d lost
Only made me want to lose it again

And isn’t that how life is
Always searching for things misplaced
So many wonderful things
Seem to vanish without a trace

And when we think we’ve found our losses
We cling on with all our might
Hopeful that somehow
They’ll bring back our lost delight

And yet sadly our thinking
Often leads us further astray
Until we finally realize
We just need to go another way
