Jigsaw Puzzle


A jigsaw puzzle consisting of jagged pieces and rough edges,
that repeatedly try new things. Finding new places. New faces.
Wandering endlessly as they search for a place to belong,
wishing that there were some simple things in life.

But how often the simple things in life are taken for granted.
Disregarded and forgotten.
Mistreated and unwanted.
A serendipitous rainbow, the serenity of a sunset.
The unknown simplicity of this remarkable life.

This remarkably perplexing life,
always presenting a new challenge to face.
It is disguised as an impossible task,
and it is followed solely by a seemingly meaningless reward.
A flawed prize.
Uncover the mystery. After all, everything has its beauty.

Beautiful ideas are mistaken for crazed opinions,
and the wandering become the lost. The missing.
There is no guide through this life,
nor is there a beaten path to be taken.
Few carry on, standing tall amongst the fallen,
dreaming about the simple things in life.

A serendipitous rainbow, the serenity of a sunset,
and the unknown simplicity of this remarkable life.
