Excerpts: Who Are "They" Anyway - Part XXXIV

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 1:52 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

I shot him a glance
You know somethin
I dont know?
Not really,
      he said,
I just know
that sometimes
people look for answers
in every place
except the most obvious one.
Havent you had
that experience?
You spend all day
Lookin for something
Till finally
You give up
In frustration.
And once you give up,
what youre looking for
shows up -
right in plain sight,
right under your nose!
