Yet To Tread.
Updated: Nov 9
Foreword: This piece I wrote following quite a major decision to leave my job, after almost 11 years. Following 3 years of migraines, leading to lots of missed work days, and more recently depression. These words try to sum up the way I feel about now, and what the future may hold.
Decision made, the time has come Maybe my mind Will feel less numb?
End of an era, some may say Out of the darkness, to the light Shining in front, shows a new way
To look behind on trodden path Gaze back where I've been Empty space, where once was graft
Memories surround like enveloping mist Distant sounds of laughter I'll miss.. That hang in the air, linger like a lovers kiss
The hand of my future Beckons me forward.. Into a land, ahead..homeward
Ignoring the fear in my head But showing in my eyes, I scan the horizon My hopes to realise?
So where does it lead? My lifes new path Out in the distance To follow my heart
Wherever it ends, to lay my head I know they'll be more I've yet to tread...
