Searchers - Poem by Smoky Hoss

Life is full
of subtle ambiguity,
'tis seldom found
in literal certainty -
narrow paths
canyons and water falls;
living is not always easy to follow
into where it calls -
Searchers we're born
Searchers we'll die,
carried on Home by the tears of pain and joy
that Life has given us to cry and cry -

    Great poem, expressing the truth of it all. We are constantly searching
    and endure pain and tears through all our fears. and hopefully, we find joy.

    Smoky- It is hard to know exactly what we are searching for, but you are so right, we are searchers. You, ever so vividly show us both the pain and joy of that search. I see much depth
    in a brilliant relating

    A great poem, living can be hard sometimes but if we stop
    and think, living can be amazing it can make all the pain
    worth it.
