I have meandered through too many roads on this stint,
both traveled and untraveled.
Now I am completely lost
in a state of limbo feeling frustrated and unraveled.
The advice to “follow my heart” I cannot honor
for it was pulverized into pieces eons ago.
My instincts are shot as well
as its heeds I have ignored
unsychronizing my inner ebb and flow.
Uncertain what the answer is
or what direction I should take.
I am hoping if I write enough
my own road I will make.
Thus, I implore you to bear with me on this journey
through these mangled words I timidly bestow.
And perhaps I will find comfort through these pages
eventually allowing this dark soul
to be guided by her inner glow.
