The first journey


I was once afraid of words

Terrified of poorly written lines

Mystified over greatly written ones

More often drawn to my quiet lies

 

I chose voicelessness over feeling

The troubles of the mind aren't ruling

Often times mistaken

But not every thought needs voice

 

I understood the lines

Both in-between and the surface

There were sentences calling on my lips

Uncanny thoughts growing into verses

 

So I chose again

To learn or to run

To pick a wit or a pun

My path is still much unknown

But I have found that I'm not alone

And much decisions are not my own.

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
