A Poem About Following a Long Stretch

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

About Stupidity Hole

I'm some guy that does stuff. Hoping to one day fill the internet with enough insane ramblings to impress a cannibal rat ship. I do more than I probably should. I have a page called MS Paint Masterpieces that you may be interested in checking out. I also co-run Culture Eater, an online zine for covering the arts among other things. We're on Patreon!
