EVE OF MY DEPARTURE

The eve of my departure
Inspires many thoughts
Of all the lies accepted
And all the truths I’ve sought

Asking of myself, many questions
And pondering why
Answers come in whispers
Then a moan, then a sigh

Sometimes understanding
Sometimes left to wonder
Then shattered by the thought
Was merely all to plunder

Did I seek answers lying within
Or look for questions lying without
Did I forget the reflection of everyone
And the understanding, what I am about

Have I maybe questioned in error
Then misunderstood replies
Have I looked so darkly
Seeing only shadows in others eyes
