Once You Stop Looking For It, It Finds You

Stop Searching

A baby with just one shoe… now that’s an odd thing
To behold in a stroller at the shopping mall.
What is this mother thinking? Is she not aware
That the child’s shoe is missing? Indeed she must care
That it is. It’s apparent that she’s dropped the ball.
What is she doing to well protect her offspring?

A few days ago actually it’s been gone.
She was at the same mall, and she search everywhere
She could think of without any kind of success.
In a while she decided to give up the stress
It was causing her. By her not choosing to bear
Any blame, she has her spirit to rely on.

No longer in a negative state, she received
And impulse to return to the mall with her child
Wearing only the one shoe. This seemed to her strange,
She went with her gut. The universe did arrange
But the perfect encounter, and she got a wild
Stoke of luck that would otherwise not be believed.

A group of teenaged girls wondered by, and one said
With excitement upon seeing the little one,
“The other shoe’s in the lady’s room at Macys.”
Then one offered to get it. Events such as these
Are available to everyone. Do not shun
What comes to you by impulse. Act on it instead.
