The Forest

The deep dark place in your soul

The Dark Forest, The Vast Unknown

Trapped and lost in a vast wilderness

A wilderness filled with many paths and routes

Shadows creating questions in your mind

Confusing you, misleading you, tricking you

Trying to find a way out, trying to escape

Running, Branches snapping back at you

Obstacles blocking your way, stopping you

You see the exit, the way out, your dream, your new destiny

You know you want to, but your feet are stuck, fear strikes

Dreams can be achieved, dreams can come true, do not fear them
