From You to Yourself

When the time comes

You are gonna leave yourself

to seek for the meaning of life…

Until you found out

feeling of emptiness of being somewhere

and realising of incompleteness of being somebody…

But will still want to stay away from yourself

By giving new names to what you are looking for

and you will try until the end

everything that takes you from you

and everyone who doesn’t make you yourself…

And when the time comes again

You are gonna come back to yourself at last

To seek for the truth of yourself!

Like seeing a familiar face after long time

with that person you always thought to knew well

you will meet with yourself again

and you will get together, not to leave again

With the stranger that you think you lived together

And once you find your own truth someday

you will learn to live again

with your real self…
