The Place That I Desire


I deem that I have wandered far

too long upon this way –

so many stones beneath my feet

and thorns whereon I lay.


With countless twists and turns revealed,

each one so hard to know –

it seems unclear to comprehend

the better way to go.


So everywhere I look for signs

to take me through this maze

of tangled dreams and hopes unmet

that lead to brighter days.


Perhaps inscribed on every stone

or hidden in the mire

I’ll find the runes that guide me to

the place that I desire.
