The Path is Gone

 

The Path is Gone

The way through the forest seemed sure
the light on the peak shined pure,
but then, the path was gone.

I sought the sun to shine on me
A hard climb to victory
but now, the path was gone.

I spin, I search, I turn
I hear, I look, I learn
and still, the path is gone.

I cry out “What is the way?”
I bow, I ask, I pray
and yet, the path is Gone.

I am not lost.
I know who I am
it’s just the path is Gone

Behind me lays the trail I made
Before me lay the trails I’ll make
the path is Mine!

    It sounds better my way, and in a poem, grammar does not matter. ;)
