Life Path

I am alone along my journey

The path is dimly lit

I cannot see ahead clearly

But the closer that I get

The interlocking branches

Gradually part

In front of me there is a glow

Behind are shadows dark

The view I'm looking forward to

Expands in front of me

While behind the forest closes

I can't return to see

I will always walk towards the light

And leave the dark behind

I know that it follows me

But I hope it won't ever find...
