To find myself, I lost myself, just to find myself again

I could have beenĀ faster,

I could have been wiser,

I could have been someone else instead of myself,

I strove for speed and intelligence,

But for what?

 

Just to reach there a little earlier,

Just know know a little more,

And in that race I lost myself,

 

What no one tells you in this race is,

It’s much harder to find yourself back again,

But when you do.

There is calm.
