THE WHITE HOUSE BY THE SEA
by Marc Carver
We all have to find our place in the world, don’t you think?
There has to be some place where you want to be
To fit in and to want to be there.
But what if you never find it.
What if you search and search
Search in many things and people
And you never ever find it.
Or what if you were too unique to be part of others
Or just too strange
Or you became too different
What would happen then.
You could always go and live in that cave or that white house by the sea.
A woman told me she would love to do that
and paint all day but she would get too lonely
She would have to return to people.
She looked at me as if to say you understand
At one time I might have, but I am not so sure anymore.
