Awareness

Awareness

Sometimes it’s not in the searching

But in the realization of what is already there

 

Our struggle to become someone else

The desire to make a difference in the world

Searching for a spouse who matches our list

Thinking fate is out there beyond our reach

When in fact, it is often staring us in the face

 

Forget the fake façade of unreality TV

Do your best become indispensable

And finally open your eyes

See that person across the desk

Who has been there with you all along

Biding their time

Waiting for you to realize

That

Sometimes it is not in the searching

But in the awareness of what is already there

  1. I enjoyed this poem.
    If I could bang with a hammer in order to prevent myself from being too aware I would do it in a second. I notice everything. Even when the person across the desk isn’t looking my way. I’ve been told not to look so “bitchy”, to smile more and to look up myself, but when I do, there is not return. It hits my self-esteem badly.
