Aimless, Straggling, Wanderer

Aimless, Straggling Wanderer


Ultimate nothingness;
Complete darkness,
Dense fog;

The desire to live;
The lack of drive–
Compass without direction;
Arrow without aim.

Stumbling feet hit jagged rocks:
Rumbling river in sudden drought.
Fallen trees hide blooming paths.
Dark green leaves hide bright yellow sun.

Aimless wanderer,
Stumbling along paths:
Tangled roots
Halt sudden flight;
Lingering vines
Snake slowly round.

Venomous bite
Giveth impending darkness.
Infinite stagnation,
Now ends
In the maze….
