right in front of my face

13 Jul

all my life i’ve longed for a life that

was filled with excitement and joy

a life without pain or worry

but after a time i dismissed such notions

as silly

life can be wonderful and life can be hard

but i had missed out on the whole thing because

the life i wanted was there all along

right in front of my face

i had my eyes on a distant prize

and failed to see the treasures all around me

right in front of my face

hiding

in plain sight
