How Many Days

how many days have you searched
hours spent chasing a lie
what you thought was true but in truth
would never have worked

how many words have you wasted
on things not worth your attention
on things you laced worn out shoes to chase in
but cannot move

trapped in a permanent suspension
by those words that came from you
and yet you searched the horizon
traveling on the path of time
not worth a dime but all the same

getting farther but never nearer
in those beat up converse sneakers
with trouble nipping at your feet
ignoring the ignorance
of how many years, how many minutes
pondering what saves the naked soul
to be made whole takes-
-how many
