The answer all along
The answer you’re searching for
Is an answer you’ve known all along.
You don’t need to find it
You just need to trust it.
A telltale sign
An answer all along
Is that you bump into it
Each time it seems
Yet it also seems too much of something.
So you don’t follow it.
The seventh time you bump into it.
Or maybe the twenty-seventh time.
You catch it in a different light
And it transforms.
Becomes an angle that only you see.
Becomes an idea whose time has now arrived.
Becomes what everyone else has overlooked.
Becomes meaningful toil that gives you purpose.
Becomes the necessary spark to ignite a fire.
Becomes a simple yet elegantly effective plan.
You can’t know
When this subtle and profound transformation will happen.
And you can’t force it.
You can only notice thoughts and feelings
You continually bump into
What are they trying to tell me?
That you were already standing on.
You see and trust
What you already knew.
