A Life With No One In It

2nd in the 'Calling All Poets for the Poetry Competition of 2004' competition

I see what everybody else sees, but yet I'm not with them.
My life has changed; I'm different from all the rest.
I have found something deeper in life.
I used to be with them, running around and looking for something I could not find.
Was I not ready?
Could I not see?
Was it because I didn't want to see?
These were all the things I used to ask myself.
But yet I could not find it.
Was I waiting to be found?
Or was I already found, but just looking for it.
Yet I kept looking, looking, and looking until I found it.
I could see. I felt safe.
I see what everybody else sees, but yet I'm not with them.
