alone in the woods

I hear of a wanderer that went down the hollow, with but a hand full of water and no food to swallow, the wanderer had but himself to follow.

Not the stars draped from the moon, nor the sun bathing grass, could direct the lone wanderer, to a familiar ending path -- that won't leave him squandering, from the still night's wrath.

If a wrong direction he takes, the dreadful mistakes we make, on a compass of wrong turns, the wanderer did yearn, for just a momentary break, or something to learn.

Each step paved with confusion, wandering saves and destroys , -- our self inflicted illusions, of destiny and choice.

A momentary murmur began with a hushed voice, the wanderer ignited the fervor, by following this faded voice.

Wondering where to wander, vindictive of the moon and grass, how they left the soul to ponder, -- with no assistance, only crass.

As if the soil, and the moon itself, were made of apathetic threads, leaving the lone wanderer defeated, lying under the moon, on the grass, -- undeniably dead.
