“I have changed form after form for millennials together:
Following signage after another, hunting treasures in search of the mystical experience(s).
Here I stand, tired, worn out again and within me I carry the same lingering thought(‘Unicorn this way’), alluring me to start the search again..”
“Perhaps, trying even makes for unhappiness.Perhaps, all the din of my desiring has kept the bird from my shoulder. I have tried so long and so loud after happiness. I have looked so far and wide.
“I have always imagined that happiness is an island in the river. Perhaps, it is the river. I have thought happiness to be the name of an inn at the end of the road. Perhaps, it is the road. I have believed that happiness was tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow. Perhaps, it is here. Perhaps, it is now. I have looked everywhere else.
“So here and now.
He stood at a crossroad,
Where his reaction
At that moment
To the precarious situation,
Would decide the course
Of his life.
The structure of my mind,
Is so patterned,
That I repeat myself,
My present justifies
That, so clearly.
