Inside Out Poem by Jan Hauck

You thought the puzzle was complete,
But I cannot see it anymore,
The control, marching on your own,
To your music that nobody hears,
Proudly, a message to the world,
Unbeaten by nature, always in charge.

Guard a life, stay alive, keep a life,
A secret, the missing piece to your puzzle,
You never knew you were missing,
Living inside out, letting the outside in,
Reborn and growing, outgrowing,
Liberated and new as a pearl.

You remember, people remember,
But I cannot recall anymore,
The one I briefly met before she left,
Before you appeared, the same,
And different, to stay, to know and live,
As if love set you going like a fat gold watch.
