trails ~ ~ ~

day after day,

i have been living my life



along musty trails ~

stumbling one step at a time,

dodging demons of fear


monsters from my past.


i haven’t truly cared

which way

these paths would lead


if i got lost along the way,

my only thought has been for my little men


for their hopes and dreams to come true someday.


i still wander about these musty trails,

dodging my demons



~ 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


with a loving heart walking by my side

i can stumble


feel safe




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. =)
