Forested PathA Poem by StarryNights
Hidden alone by a world of green,
An invisible entity that walks free
Undetected and overlooked
Small, insignificant, nothing compared to the big world
Small against trees
And microscopic against mountains
Who would notice such a thing?
Dark and damned,
left alone with no guardian angel.
By becoming one with nature, do we lose ourselves?
As fear slowly fades and paranoia leaves?
What happens when we let our guards down, leave our backs turned?
The survival rate changes, the soul undergoing metamorphosis
A dangerous pull leads the pathway to fate
Death; rescue; freedom; harmony; lost; alone; scared;
But maybe it becomes something else entirely.
The hope that dangers and fears are no longer a problem
Hope that with each footstep brings another step towards being free
Then there's the flip.
A child of the world, running away
Has yet to grasp the reins of life
With no one who cares, with no one to notice
Is there a wonder this child ran away?
A small little thing that society never noticed
Takes a step to getting out and losing their self
Trees that stand up to the sky
Surrounded by a green camouflage
A river nearby giving navigation
No matter how far, it leads the way;
Far from society, and more into the world
Stay or go, each step
Pause or run, each hesitation
Only two voices to keep you alive
