Walking Through the Wood

Vaughn Walker

Walking through the wood. 
Promising paths ahead. 
But others have walked here. 
On roads that can be seen. 

Wait long enough. 
The forest it grows. 
Denser by the season. 
Less to see. 
Less to be.  

Better to have taken steps. 
Than to wait. 
Times an enemy. 
Invisible as it seems.
