Searching and Knowing Print
Written by Koali   
I'm searching for something that's so hard to find
I'm falling down mountains I can't seem to climb.


I'm praying to gods that I don't even know,
But I'm ready. I'm willing, where do I go ?

You push me away when I come near,
I'm scared of you Mummy dear.

I love you when you are here, I love you when you are not,
I wish I would talk to you, but I know that I can not.

I want to be able to talk to you . I want to talk face to face,
I want to have a mother, not an empty space.
