I don’t quite know as to what it is that I am expressing with this “poem”.
On one hand I think it is suggesting something beyond the surface.
On the other, there is a good chance that it is all surface.
This started off a few days ago. I wrote a few lines, then got rid of what I wrote.
Shortly after I recovered the lines, but I did nothing with them.
Decided to work on it now, leading to the below result.
I’ve written better stuff, I think. Still, once more it is something of which I am content with. I’m trying to move my “poetry” toward something different and this is the first of many steps.
I hope you enjoy.
A long stretch rises in view
Where it leads is where I follow
Step by step I continue onward
Though there is no knowing for where I may go
Perhaps it is unwise
To walk this long stretch
When I know not where it leads
For this journey is one without firm navigation
Whilst I may be cast
Into uncertainty and danger
Conviction within my heart
Assures me that I’ll be carried to comfort
So I follow this long stretch
As it rises into view
With the determination
To see this unknown journey to its end
