The Way

Alone I walk in eerie splendor 
Down the path from years so tender
Delighted at last to follow a path from ages past 
Following years of youth and plunder
Somewhere along the way changes came wrapped in windy gales, 
of promises made , deceptions refrained 
Macabre ways put aside while wicked winds died
In favor of newly wedded ties

Strains of ancestors and race , poetry and grace
Relate all things involved in modern ways 
As truth fades from his grasp man dares try all
Where nothing is sacred ,no mystery left to bare 
One way defines them all 
In silence everything is heard , and from nothing comes all
Walk in silence along the way,
 And  from the place of nothing will come all
