...lost in the deep dark dangerous fore forest of mental foresight
the pitch blindfold blocking my light of sight
and pattering feet feebly giving way for a stumble
my heavy body spatters mad, my face smudges, i crumble
i take a leap forward, a step that would be of faith
i realize i forgot to read between the slim pith...
there is much a few step in the worlds treaded miles
very few leaps of faith that that made light and smiles
still lost, very hard to find my way i try
midsts introspections and fear of re-occurrence of history,
going forwards paints backwards the presumed future
this time my own self is in destruction; my nature...
i build castles in that darkness of the night
i war, i make soldiers win battle, i too fight
in that darkness i lead a family that follows on
dreams that i cant tell when they were born
...and i follow my ambitious dream that might...
just maybe, might lead me to that search light
