In Search

I searched …
for a tiny measure of goodness
to break through the worthless
that is within;
the solemn one.

I reached out…
to touch a searching soul
in hope for light and love
to fall upon;
the rejected one.

I poured …
from the full vase of love
onto hands and minds
that caught none
of a golden dream
to bring joy unto;
the pained one.

I pain …
as I face knowledge
the truth of a mind
that is considered;
the insane one.

I loath …
the outcome of trading
giving love’s purest
to become;
the poor one.

I cry…
as I betrayed my soul
in search of acceptance
only to become;
the alone one.
