When was it I became so lost
along life’s winding way?
My steps were steady, sure and strong
no worries in each day
One careless trip was all it took
though small and not my fault
Abruptly motion stopped for me
my feet brought to swift halt
Dense angry trees with vines throughout
no welcome there to see
Soon fear slipped in shadowed by dread
what dangers would there be?
All clarity of mind withdrew
black clouds grew in each breath
Illusions, lies and monsters lurked
to move now could mean death
Hope fled the scene no help in sight
how blind now would I be?
I failed to hear Loves silent cry
just turn and Light you’ll see
