In the Woods

I woke up in a deep dense woods
Filled with confusion and doubt
Unable to see from where I stood
A discernible pathway out
For a long time, I wandered
Till I observed along the way
A previous wayfarer’s standard
A path for everyone to obey.

I got conscious as I was heeding
The path I was on leads nowhere
The signs it left were misleading
It comprised unconscious snare
It was not enough to ignore them
Once the deception became known
I took the time and I tore them
As I created a pathway of my own.

In a foggy woods with eerie sensation
And the feelings of being lost for long
Courage became my sole munition
My vaporized soul condensed strong
Forging onward, persevering
I can’t do nothing else but try
To cut through to a clearing
Where I can clearly see the sky.

You are given your own brain to think.

Use reason to devise your own philosophy of life
Live by your philosophy. Be yourself, not an elf
Or the second-rate version of someone else.

You are competent than you can ever imagine
Illuminate your life by letting your light shine
Spread your wings and soar higher into the ether.

Believe in yourself and the power of your potentials
Nature has endowed you with something special
You remain a god in your own right.
