I Seek


Hands hold Stick

Blindfold on eyes

A Game to Seek

The paper beast

Stuffed White, Blue, Pink

With hidden treats


A voice speaks:

"Be smart, turn to your right." 

Am I smart? To the right, I turn. 

"Hit it."

Swing the stick with all my might. 

Swoosh! No hit.

An idiot,

Am I?


A voice speaks:

"Turn Left, my Love"

Am I loved?  I go to the left. 

"Hit it."

Swing the stick with all my might. 

Swoosh! No hit.

Unloved, 

Am I?


A voice speaks:

"Turn around, pretty one"

Another one speaks:

"Forward, my dear."


Am I Pretty?

Am I dear?


More voices speak

I follow Each

To be pretty,

To be loved

To be right

But each voice

Leads to Defeat


My arms are weak. 

I ask "What do I seek?" 

My heart speaks.

"Freedom, you seek,

Let go of stick. 

Let your eyes see

See what you seek."


I drop the stick,

I let my eyes see.


The voices that jeer

They're not here.

Mere Phantoms

That lead to defeat. 


Heart's voice is real.

It knows what I seek.

I seek to see

I seek to be free
