trails ~ ~ ~

day after day,

i have been living my life

wandering

aimlessly

along musty trails ~

stumbling one step at a time,

dodging demons of fear

and

monsters from my past.

~

i haven’t truly cared

which way

these paths would lead

or

if i got lost along the way,

my only thought has been for my little men

and

for their hopes and dreams to come true someday.

~

i still wander about these musty trails,

dodging my demons

and

monsters

~ however ~

i recently discovered a part of myself,

i thought had died many years ago…

~

~

~

these trails, though musty, are still my life ~

what matters

is the life

i breathe

and

with a loving heart walking by my side

i can stumble

and

feel safe

being

me

~

a foggy, hazy morning

a hazy morning along the Des Plaines River Trail – a peaceful place for me

    Beautiful! I often feel lost, but as they say, we all reach the same destination in the end. It’s enjoying the journey that counts. =)
