Purposeless and Zen

i stayed up nights,

worrying,

trying to control everything,

buried in guilt.

by seconds,

minutes,

hours,

days,

weeks,

months,

years,

i disappeared in the maze of trying to find purpose.

purpose!

like diamond,

i admired it,

wanted it,

dreamt of it,

but never really found it.

i stayed in the forest long enough,

never wanting to return.

right up until,

i died to self,

felt death so near,

did i realize it was purposeless all along.

and there i was,

purposeless,

yet happy.

purposeless,

and Zen.
