In this dark forest alone in the night I stand
With nothing but a compass in my hand
I stay positive for I know the plan is grand
Almighty won’t forget and leave me to strand

But my faith starts to waver ‘cause am without a rand
How can I still sing his praise and that of his brand?
I wonder if I’ve turned into a lowly Scand
For I’ve forgotten his name in the heat of this sand

Defeat is taking over me and every one of my gland
For I have lost direction in this strange land…

    There is a scene in the Dragonlance fantasy novels where the heroes wander into a forest and lose direction. This made me think of that 🙂

      Haven’t watched it so can’t say how similar the two things are. But losing direction (literally or figuratively) is tough

  2. How to Find the Guiding Star Within
    When the Inner Compass is Broken Indeed
    Dear Yamini True i’ve Been Without This Compass

    Too Rewinding Back to the Last Years of my Dead Zone
    Then before i Escaped on A Navarre Beach As Once
    Again One With Sugar White Sands Emerald Green
    Waves Sea Oats Swaying in the Breeze And Sea Gull
    Wings Spiraling Around the Sun Our Star Soon To Become

    A Free Dance
    And Song of
    Faith Within
    Once Again
    Love Winging
    Belief For All That is Hope
    DarK Thru LiGHT So Many
    More Colors of my Tree oF LiGHT
    to LiFE Up in Dance And Song Free oF LiFE
    SMiLes Dear FRiEnD i See the Shape of What
    i Just Write Without Plans And Just Evidence
    More This Compass Within is Still on Fire Alive

    Yet’s It’s True i have yet to Rewind to the Last Years
    of the Dead Zone so i Will For ‘They’ Always Taught me

    That God Is After Death Somewhere in A Far Away Place
    in a Dirt Nap to Actually Meet and Live There With Also Strangely

    That i would take my Place on the Right Hand Side of God Yet How
    Will that Be as that is More Reflective of Literal Left Brain Processes
    of Small Picture Material Reduced Thinking Often Shallow in Feelings
    And Senses Often Far Away From Even Embodied Whole as Being Human

    Trapped in
    Just Words of Dusty Old
    Books and Such As That

    Well Meanwhile then in the Dead
    Zone i Walked Around Our Block
    at 3 AM As Usual in the Spring Dark
    And Quiet Not to Hurt my Eyes and Ears
    So Much as Yes Dark Curtains in Our Home
    Blocked Out the LiGHT True in Someways i
    Had Become a Vampire Then Just No Blood
    of Hope, Love, Faith, Belief or Even A Memory
    if i ever Felt a Smile Before as i Looked to the Dark

    Skies With Twinkling Stars that are Harder to See with
    Brown SHades on Wondering As Many Folks Related Was
    God Up THere Somewhere to Be Found Yet i Knew the Truth
    Cold and Hot Rocks as Far As Science Will See So Far Devoid
    of Life Like Ours Still To Be Our Only Planet Our Home For Us Truly

    Evolving to Live
    Feet Truly i Still Could
    Touch the Earth With No
    Compass of North to South
    to East to West Required to
    Find Out Where I am Presently Now New
    Then Forever Now Standing On Earth For Real…

    And Then my FRiEnD the Voice Within So Much
    Deeper And Bigger Picture Embodying With All that
    is So Much More Left Handed in Metaphor on the Left
    Side of God With Right Brain More Fully Alive as Mind Left
    And Right Integral Communing Whole SoUL For Real THere Was/IS No

    Question Anymore WHere God is As Again Once Again i Became ‘i AM’
    the Sugar White Sands Emerald Green Gulf Waves Sea Oats Swaying
    In the Breeze And Sea Gull Wings Spiraling Around Our Star the Sun

    i Am the Beach
    And The Forest
    And The Streams
    That Make The Rivers
    Flow to the Bay Emptying
    into the Gulf of Mexico Eventually
    Flowing Into the Atlantic And Pacific
    Oceans Surrounding the Earth Wow

    How Amazing We Are Living Creatures
    Who May Measure So Much of God in
    One Lifetime Within my FRiEnD So then

    i Understood God is Within Outside Inside
    Above So Below All Around God Is All that is

    And the Best Part of All Is i Am Human And Gifted
    in Such a Way to Love it All DarK thru LiGHT Eternally Now New

    And Even Make ‘Contact’ With Another Human Being Around
    The World Who Transforms Her Soul into Avatars of Words Yes

    As i Surely Do too Through These Avatar Words of Soul True Now
    It’s A Tight Squeeze Fitting All 244 American Pounds of me through
    This Fiber Optic Cable Yet at the Speed of LoVE For All (God) That is God

    All in All For Real

    My Goodness
    Anything Yes is

    Possible New Now
    For Real in A place
    With No Sun, or Moon,
    Or Stars Beyond Distance,
    Space, Time, or Even Matter of
    my Flesh and Blood Body True
    As Long As Servers Serve me Up
    This Reflection of the Sugar White Sands
    of My Soul All the Emerald Green Waves
    Sea Oats Swaying in the Breeze and Sea Gull
    Wings Spiraling Around Our Star The Sun Might

    Even Last As Long as the Reflection of Beethoven’s
    Soul “Moonlight Sonata” Yet It’s True my FRiEnD All We
    Have is Eternally Now This Breath At Best to Inhale Peace
    Exhale Love With Least Harm For All Giving Sharing Caring
    Healing ThiS Way So Yes this is All Naked, Enough, Whole, Complete

    Which means Yes This Gift Of Life Presently is Surely Gift Enough to EnJoY

    As Every
    SMiLe is A
    Grain of Sand
    Holding Mountains
    of Human Love Up All Around Our World
    Holding Hands This Way With Huge Grins

    And True After Public Dancing Everywhere
    i Go Now in 16,916 Miles in 106 Months How
    Beautiful it is to See Folks Smiling at me Everywhere
    i go As They See me as Essence of Free Dance Indeed

    HAha Before
    i Even Begin
    to Dance Again

    my FRiEnD
    So Much Again
    to Give Share Care
    And Heal Now What A
    Wonderful Life This Can And Will Be And Is

    Yes As Close As A Smile to Give, Share, Care,
    And HeaL ETernAlly Now Real A Breath of God (Love) to Feel For Real..:)
