A Writer's Journey of a Secluded Mind

One falls down
Lays still on the ground
Two rise up
Pillars of support
Arise from the ground
That which has fallen
Three arrive on the wings of a cloud
Light pours in
All surrounded with love
One steps forth to pave the way
Walking forward
So others may follow
Perseverance Strength
Agility Perception and Caution
Illumination
Wisdom
Until west meets east
Stumbles and falls
Achievements and stalls
Though the path is overridden
Following those
That have gone before
Walking
Where others fear to tread
Soaring
Where others only dream of going
Singing with voices
To chase away fears
Look forward not back
To follow the track
Only seen by an illuminating light
Buffered and supported by wind
Protected by wings
We fall down
But perseverance picks us up
Those that will come behind
May stumble and fall
But where there is a will
Steps will be built
To cushion the fall
Obstacles are opened
Moved out of the way
Until the light fades
The path is no more
The wind has stopped
The pillars have crumbled
And the fallen one
Can no longer rise from the ground.

(insfired by “Magic Shop” – BTS)

At the edge of the ocean
On the end of the stairs
Beyond the light of the stars
Into eyes unseen
And eyes unseeing

That is where you’ll find me
That vast unknown
The expanse of the open

Until west meets east
And the moon turns back
What is in front is eternal
Not yet defined
And adventure unspoken
A truth unknown
So walk the path
Until you can walk no more
Then one step more

Hope is eternal
Hope is yours

When the last light fades
And the cover is closed
And the words are no more
And my story is told

Just know this
You were a blip on the page
A piece of my chapter
Be it maker or mage

The length you walk with me
I do not know
For daylight is still here
the ink is still wet
and I have chapters to go

For there are
Faucets unseen
And depths unknown
This story is not done
This story of me

I like to say I can write English well, but in perusing Twitter (avoiding evening adult chores) I ran across this tweet-link from the DailyWritingTips regarding Lead (present) and Led (past).

Oops.

I have so been guilty of this. Read the article, it is well put together and makes you think. I found that I have been following this account and if I had taken the time to click a link ages ago, I may have been led down a more informative path.

I now feel that I need to review documents at work to ensure (or is it insure?…) that we’ve used the correct tenses. I hope to lead in the right direction but am sure I have led along treacherous paths.

Oh well, just one more pitfall in the journey of a writer’s mind.

I would fly
Through the night
Just because you called
I would drive
Just to see
The sun rise
I would light
A thousand candles
Just to let you
See the light
And I will dance
In the rain
Just to let
It wash away
the pain
