The path
Narrow lines
Guiding onwards
Shrouded and shadowed
Both beauty and respite
Call a seeker’s feet to stray
Till drawn by darker temptations
The light ignored for baser nature
The track seems lost in a jungle of need
Wayward spirits seek the path of return
Peering through the self-created gloom
In search of a light that seems lost
Until turning deep within
They find a guiding star
Present, quiescent
Lighting the way
Never lost
