The Search - Poem by Karima Puzon

I never knew who is the soul beneath this flesh
I searched for clues just to find out
Beneath the trees that I crushed
And shadows that i step on
I never found anything worth remembering

I watched the birds fly above the sky
And snakes swallowed rats alive
But still no answer....not even a clue

I traveled so far and wide
I nearly gave up everything
I searched the desert
Yet I cannot see why.....I cannot see how

I stepped on mountains
Searched beneath the caves
But yet... I haven't found myself

I was about to lose hope
I stop by the dazzling lake
To have a big gulp
Then I found out
Where my soul is
My tears fell from my eyes
I look through the rushing water
I have found myself...
