Endless Quest

By Tamara Raidt

You will spend half of your life
striving to find the right words

said the fairy who had bent
over my cradle at four a.m.

and once you think you’ve achieved your task
you will spend the other half

striving to find someone
who can understand them.

  1. This is so beyond true. Finding someone who understands our words—something about that phrase was breathtaking to me. Not only in its poetry but in its idea, because it’s something that most of us want in life: to be understood truly by that someone. Beautifully said.
