Eventual Return

Distance like darkened fear
Time evaporating to the void
Greedily stolen
Lazily lost
Wrenched from the paths of future
Tangled in the embrace of now

I can't see myself anymore
Can't see my footsteps on the floor
They were stopped at the door
Laid in broken shoe
Outside the paths ensue
I can't step to the new

A rest
A breath
A drop
A flood
Vacation or distraction
Inspiration or separation
The paths remain true
Awaken and renew

Strong roots take hold without leave
Strong minds find ways to believe
Strong steps can move a mountain
Strong waters can bloom and fountain

There I am
Here I go
That is my path
This is my show
