To look for you in different air

While denying myself, as if I owe the explanation

To look for you, and find you intact and proud

As I arrive fragile, broken, beaten

To look for you and weaken perhaps my only inheritance from you; conceit

To look once more, hopeful to find some truth behind me

To look at you and not to know you

Not knowing you, while still caring to recover some unfamiliar world

To look for you, not knowing how

While picking up scattered answers along the way

To hug you, while fighting tears and resentment

Once again facing your silence, judgment and contempt

To return without home, from a search that leaves me nothing

Coming up short on a petty and shallow trail
