Dark woods M N

Should I turn and go back To search for another way Or continue through these woods Hoping to see the next day? I will turn deaf To the cries of wailing spirits And whispers of the living dead Careful with each step I take Lest I tread on a snake The moon's illumination Barely reaches the ground I can feel eyes all around Fate has turned me into A meal for the creatures that dwell In these woods my blood will flow To the ground and feed the ghosts And soon my spirit will be confined To the dark woods Of the living dead ( I got inspired from a forest that is nearby our home and it borders a cemetery and a national park)
