Ancient trees within a jaded path
history begging for me to ask
what lies here ,what lay before ?
enter twined with vines gone mad
bears witness to history of love and war
Ancient spirits passing through
a soul left behind no one knew
Indian trails of tears a fallen tribe
the ruins of the many left behind
what lies before , what lies by side
Ancient bloodletting crying through wind
how to forgive a given sin
why does one leaf find more relevance
casting out the single broken branch dying slow
like the pain within my soul
an Ancient past refusing to let go...
