The Room You Cannot Find

The Room You Cannot Find

Cardboard moving boxes
Old toys in a heaping pile
Walls stripped lifeless white
Let go, sad old child

Rusty borrowed furniture
Overgrown grass
Wave goodbye to what you had
Let go of hours past

Torn and beaten teddy bears
Rips in all your clothes
A smile for no reason
Why won’t you let go?

Holding onto nothing
Silent whispers of the air
“You’re looking for a miracle”
Let go of what’s not there

The cold tile floor dust
Is moving on faster than you
Just close the door
Let go, it’s the only thing you can do

Let go, silly child
Leave that life behind
There’s nothing waiting for you
In a room you cannot find
