The Journey

My life is full of paths

overgrown with thorns.

They pierce my flesh as

I try to find my way home.

The pain is blinding, I forget

who I am.

I seek guidance from those

who’ve gone before me.

I find my solace in the sand

beneath the sea--

the salt stings, healing

my wounds and as I drift off into

a sea of oblivion, I feel no pain.
