in this world, i think

there is something

that i haven't done

and i don't think i know

where to find it

or even what it could be

searching the faces of people,

their eyes downcast,

thinking, i'd see it there

and i'm dangerous now,

scouring bookstores

for wisdom for sale

and i don't believe anymore

the answer lies in the arms

of the one that i want

so how much time will there be

before i'll accept

i'll go hungry
