My Path

Once trodden now gone barren

Neath arms of the forest,

A path lies hidden

Its visage long surrendered to emerald carpet

Life returns.

Unshod I wander

Earths pulse below me

Each pace fortified

Living energy compels

Tomorrow’s battles

Won today

Yesterday’s sorrow yet lingers

Memories to teach

Lessons unlearned.

The future unknown

Tomorrow not yet today

New trials to meet

No advantage from the scale

I face the rising sun.
