From the Typewriter #5

People spend their entire lives

Looking for the perfect moment

When we’re children we dream of adulthood

Looking for the future as if it’s gone somewhere without us

One day we wise up, start forgetting the past, living in the now, and resolve to praying for the future

In life we encounter conflict

We wonder if things will ever get better

We write our goals and hope to God with clenched fists they happen

But you can’t work with your hands closed

In the midst of our dreams and goals we feel like we’re in limbo.

Hanging between where we are and where we want to be.

We feel invisible, non – existent, replaceable

It’s as though people look at us, but see a mist or fog and keep moving

The feeling of being lonely and empty is like a church with no people

Relationships will make you feel like you’ve found your place

You’ve never felt so wanted and needed

And you wonder after all this time why you’ve never taken the moment to acknowledge what and who you’ve got.
