The Path beneath the Haze

The Path Beneath the Haze
 

Off the beaten path I walk

Terrain harsh and unfamiliar

The hard sun casts my shadow long

Truth and courage I remember.

The eyes of the wolf upon me casting;

Judgment with his stare.

Unscathed is my approval

My soul naked and laid bare

Basking in thought I summon regret

Loves lost and times swallowed whole

For life offers no refund

Now, I wait the horizon to soothe my soul.
