(The Search series: Part I – She Was Walking Searching, Part II – The Road has Come To And End, Part III Still Searching, Part IV She Became A Tree, Part V The Mirror After The Tree )

She is walking, searching…

She was a sweet little girl

She had dreams in her starry eyes, song in her heart and a smile on her face.

She had a big bright red gas balloon in her hands

She was walking searching,

Searching for a post where she could tie the strings of her oh-so-precious red balloon

She has colors around her, rainbows,

The sky above was blue the ground beneath green


The path became rough one day, she cross past the last strech of grass

she was smiling

This she knew, if she can’t find a post the string would slip away her hand

And her balloon would fly, fly far away to never come back

Over the ocean and the mountains, no one knows where…

So she walked on

She found a few post but could never tie the string

May be she didn’t know how to, may be the posts were too weak

Her search went on

The ground was pale and dusty now, the sky not so bright

She walked on roads no one else took

She learned things the hard way

Soon she and her balloon were walking alone on the road

There’s no one around

It must be a desert, sand all around.

She still smiled.

Behind the smile there was bewilderment

Why can’t I find it? Why? When every one else can Why can’t me

She was cracking up inside, she started loosing herself

Sands all around, ground beneath her feet slipping away

She wants to hold on but all she have in her hand is sand, all slipping away

She kept on walking, searching asking questions to never find answers

Her teardrops dried, her heart and soul lost their element.

Slowly she started feeling like everything inside of her was flying out

Then she felt lighter, like a dead fish she floated up

Shoot her, the bullet will pass through, she is hollow

She feels like she can fly now, to wherever…

She feels nothing more than that

its been 28 years of walking

she is still walking, smiling

it would be sometime before she notices that her balloon is not there any more…
