Searching

Smell The Coffee

I search for truth

on passing faces

and in graveyards

but find it

within prison walls

I search for hope

etched in tea leaves

but find it

in abundance

clogging hospital walls

I search for love

hidden beneath words

or perched on lips

but find it wearing

a cloak of silence

..waiting within me
