The Maze

Cover Image

Opting out of society’s bustle

to preserve my sanity

seemed the right thing to do

and yet this new direction

has necessarily propelled me

into a maze-like


lined with high hedges

that obscure the path I chose

I can’t see where I’m going

lest I glimpse it briefly

on my tippytoes

and commit to memory

the captured vision

complete with its inaccuracies

and certain distortions

Continuing my quest

with just the vaguest of notions

about which way to go

is disorienting at best

But worse than this,

the failure to grow

I could be going in circles

for all that I know
