Plotting The Course

Sometimes I feel lost

Not so much in the world

But within myself

I seem to lose my groove

Words get trapped beneath ego

And ego never shuts up

Dead, dry, crackling leaves

Rustle across my soul

With hands over ears

I navigate the only way I know

I gnaw my way home

Thank you for this honor as well!

    “Sometimes I feel lost

    Not so much in the world

    But within myself”

    Yes, I know that for me whenever I feel lost, it’s always “within myself.”

    Have a great weekend!
