Poem: Searching For More

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Searching (for more)" by Hannah Acfield

She turns her back
and walks out,
leaving behind every little thing
she held precious in life.

A momentary lapse in judgment,
no time
to think it through,
defeated by daily struggles
with no energy remaining.

She wants to smile,
to hear laughter in her voice,
to do all the things
she has not done,
before her days are gone.

"Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson
