Foot after foot each stride unto peace
waywardly silent chasing the sunbeams.
Delving deep rooted to hedgerow low
farther from tumult the further I go.
Diving for cover and driven in sorrow,
ambling vacant through depths of dead leaves.
Submerging from strife and a fierce mire of wrath.
A surging relief as I tread this lost path.
