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
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

Tonight is open link night at d’Verse. I decided to revive one from the past that many of you who are recent followers did not see.

  1. thank you for reviving this Dwight, I too sometimes see an old poem having a different meaning months later, a deeper meaning too. my best friend told me something of the same, some things hide in plain sight and in our rush and self importance pass it by, thank you for this nugget of wisdom today

  3. Awareness of what is already there is part of the joy of maturity. Realization of the fact that, in fact, none of us is indispensable… that’s part of the growing development of our humility that makes us able to live in contentment and inner joy. God bless you! ❤

  4. Firstly, I love the photo, Dwight. The statue looks like the ones at the Eden Project in Cornwall.
    Secondly, I agree that awareness is often just the realisation of what is already staring us in the face. I learned that when I retired – it took a long time but I got there in the end. Your poem reaffirms all the things we think but seldom say.

  5. Awareness flows like a river into our soul and though it’s always present it becomes more apparent with time and age 🙂 This is exquisitely drawn, Dwight ❤️
