The Path

A journey long, paths yet discovered
Looping, rugged hills uncovered
I walk and walk, facing truths
Sometimes overwhelmed, others amused
Slowing to take in every moment
To feel and accept, let go of torment
Layers shed, peeling slowly away
Left in the soil to dissipate and decay
This path circles back to where I began
Eyes open wide and reborn skin
Free to be, to love with my all
To be vulnerable and ME, to risk the fall
Every cell awakened, every emotion alive
Hands outstretched, I’ve arrived
Not to a place of stagnancy and ease
But an ongoing evolution, one of peace
Now we can walk, hand in hand, at home
No premade trials, but a path of our own
