~Long March Home~







I walk in the dark with no destination
So cold...trembling cold...frightening cold.
Lost..wandering under this heavy load
This pack so full...Of what?

Stumbling now, can't see up ahead
Fear go away...I can't think straight.
This path so dark,so cold..no end in sight.
So alone out here. Can't keep marching...I must!

This pack so heavy... But why?
I can't open it...so frightening but why?
No strength...Courage?I had some ..but gone now.
I gave it away when I embraced the pain.

A small light up ahead...Who's there?
Who?...My brother?...Haven't met before but you know Me?
Always have been...Always will be?
My hand?...You'll take it ?...Help me up?

You've been down this trail?
Found a way out? How?...Where to?
You came back looking for me?...Why?
You won't like what you've found!...Same as me?

Trust, Faith, Hope, Love...All gone Now.
I gave them away when I embraced the pain.
You gave them away too?...But found them again?
Where?...How?....He took your hand back then?


Who's hand?...

My Brother's Hand.
