Walk in the woods

Wilderness all around

Yet a sense of peace

I walked through the woods

Dry leaves crackling

Below my feet

Ghostly silence

Echoing the sound of

My breath

Yet there is relief

Bewilderment does exist

Since the vision shifted

It’s no more the destination

That I seek

Moment of epiphany achieved

When My soul realised

its lessons are engraved

On the edges of the path

I am walking on

Awaiting their release
