Maya

I have worn out my heart
with all of this longing.
My feet ache from the
endless searching.
My legs have dropped me
down to the earth
in complete surrender.

In this quiet stillness,
I realize my folly.

Everything I have been searching for
was within me.

I had been seeking the seeker.
My mind turns in on itself
and there is nothing left for me to do
but laugh.
Laugh so hard the tears roll down
and soften the sweet earth beneath me.
