Retrieving the path

The question is now, how to retrieve the path

and not err another thousand years away from your hearth

you were but a child when you had left the place

and now you’re lost in the midst of forests unfamiliar to your eyes

walk one step after another, carefully, listening to all the voices

of the landscape around you, and trying to determine which one

resonates with the deepest part of yourself

once you have found that voice, follow her no matter what

sometimes she will grow very weak, and you’ll come to a stop

perhaps even walk in the opposite direction

but sooner or later you will hear it again, as a beacon in the night

trying to guide you back home
