“You can’t see the forest for the trees!”  “It’s as plain as the nose on your face!”

Haven’t we all encountered situations that weren’t all that obvious?  The answers we sought might have been “obvious” to everyone else, but certainly weren’t to us.  We pondered, thought, questioned,lamented often aggrieved we couldn’t or hadn’t reached a conclusion which seemed so apparent to everyone else.

It’s as obvious as the nose on your face

I know what I would do if I were in your place

Then tell me what am I missing

It is completely astoundingly aggravating

The solution that i seek

Out of reach and oblique

Please tell me what I should do

Which way to turn to get through

The journey to discovery

Although part of the recovery

Never simple easy or comfortable

I want the answer without preamble

Alone and quiet without an audience

You will find that which is obvious







  1. As obvious as that thing I was looking for which was right where it was supposed to be … yet I couldn’t see it. Perfectly. Obvious.
