Endless Road

Take me down,
back to shattered memories
of souls I have lost.
Take me back,
before the mistakes
and the final tears of goodbye.
Before I was stripped bare
of who you led me to be,
before I was a shell of a soul,
a broken heart
carried miles and miles away.
But soon the winds of change
will sway the branches in my favor,
while steady feet
hold my head high.
Let the trees bud
with lessons I have learned,
challenges I have conquered,
wisdom I have gained.
Let the world start anew,
from the branch of life,
to Adam and Eve,
to where we have been
and where I will go.
So it is written.

Put down the field hockey stick for just a second and post something new! Even if it's crap. I like crap :)

By the way--reading Pride and Prejudice right now (finished Dracula a while ago). It has a lot more intrigue than Sense and Sensibility, or so it would seem. I'm enjoying it :) It's interesting that many parts of their lives are just as public, or more so, than ours, although they have to hide it behind strict codes of social behavior.
