THE ANSWER TO ME
(6/21/15)


I am
my problem

even when
my troubles seem
to source
from outside
of myself

my reaction
to those dilemmas
is my problem

I do
look elsewhere
for solutions

books

classes

movies

but while
these answers
have worked
for the authors

the instructors

perhaps even
the actors

they fall
quite short
on a personal
level

my circumstances
being
entirely my own

I know
to look inside
for the clues
to cure
my conundrums

but
quite often
my deficiencies
are merely
mirrored

fixes
are hidden
and quite often
fleeting
when found

what
proved useful
in the twilight
of morning
may fail miserably
in the bright
sunshine
of afternoon

still
I keep searching

I keep walking

I keep working

hoping
for a lasting
resolution
to appear

before
that final sunset
provides me
with the solution
for everything
