The Wilderness Is My Home
I may look content in fine and lace
but the wilderness is my home.
It cares not what chaos brought me here.
Its paths are mine to roam.
When I need some space to understand
the choices I have made.
To compare my works to those of God
and confront this unafraid.
I start off for the mountain top
which I will likely never reach.
I care not, for life lives on its sides.
And what lesson does this teach?
There is a truth that’s shared along the trail
to cherish all we see,
For we may never pass this way again
but what we love will always be.
For my sister Patricia. I will miss you forever
