You wandered down the shaded path
Of thorns and fallen trees
Dry wheat fields a far oft,
The place that made you grieve.
The roaring cries of creatures above
The sounds, gave such a fright
The darkened world encircled round
No hiding place in sight
The river below no longer flowed
It was littered with broken dreams
So many things you could've wanted
But nothing came true it seemed.
Each passing day, you felt you had failed
No one there to help you through
You try and try to lift yourself
But no strength is left in you.
As the time passes slowly
You don't know how long it'll be
Before you find a way to escape
That world so hard to flee.
You say a little prayer
Heartfelt with drops of tears
Pleading for a hint of light
That overtakes your troubles and fears.
The sun then peers out from the clouds
Its shining rays touch your soul
You suddenly feel you have some hope
Out of that miserable hole.
That quiet strength and faith you gain
Is enough to get you back
Following the rays of light
Until your on the right track.
Now your on the straightened path
With gardens and flowers grown
Sunflower fields a far oft
Beauty thus mind blown.
No longer do you desire the world,
Behind in darkness dread
But that world with light and truth
The one that looks ahead.
