The one less traveled…

The Journey of tears…river of thought

Noise…a barrier for listening

talk…intangible to action

thought …an elusive stream…ever present…ever flowing

Alone I mute external noise

Alone I silence speech

Alone I let the river flow on…

listening to my soul

asking questions of my life



the river rises from deep within and floods my senses


coursing rivulets of thought over the planes of my cheeks

soaking my skin

I hold my breath like a dam

my hand goes to my eyes

trying to force the river of thought back

it flows on through my fingers…

the dam breaks

my hands softly meet in supplication

I bow my head to them

I pray for a peaceful journey

    Fate must have brought me here today. You just described in detail the exact state I was in only an hour ago. Just when I felt the most alone…. It is very comforting to know I am not.
