I still myself

close my eyes

inhale…exhale

the burdens upon

my soul

then my spirit

begins the journey

to the forest path

where emerald green

trees beckon strength

to my weary heart

then my spirit enters

a misty green realm

where I lose myself

away from distractions

and the concrete jungle

of busy disconnect

and I know only

a Higher Soul

of connect

and nothing from

without

can touch

within.

A Vagabond Soul

Written In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Vagabond

Your Daily Word Prompt May 16, 2019 – Fortitude

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #87 – I give you a choice between two pictures. You can choose any one, or write two separate pieces for both, and link up.

I am using both photos for one piece.

A vagabond soul travels down dark corridors

seeking to find her purpose in this life

though year after year no answers come and

every so often she stops to look outside the window

to watch the people below on the streets enjoying…

friends, family, lovers…engaging life to the full

with a purpose for living, loving, and being loved…

she is happy for them but can’t help crying inside

wondering why she was never given these blessings

yet…in the depths of her sorrow she finds the

fortitude to continue to keep pressing on in the

hope that these blessings will one day be hers too

even though no one has ever taught her about hope

and has really never had a reason to hope since childhood

still, it is there, deep in her core as she has survived

a design for her life that has not been her desire,

her dream for the last two-thirds of her life and

she cannot help but ask…Has this hope led her astray?
