Set the Compass

I trace this line forward My path unknown but written The future moving toward me With each step taken I keep each pace even Steady motion silent beat Know not where I'm headed But my course now seemingly set Feel the ground beneath me And above the sky so vast Anxious but resigned to tomorrow With heavy heart stuck in the past All the whispers how they deafen White noise pulsing behind mine eyes Searching for the reasons Aching to make sense of what's inside

Wanting to know the answers Confused by word and glance Soften my repose Or steel heart with heavy stance Though I may never know the reasons And like carrion it eats away I tread this new path slowly This time I know I should not stay Set the compass northwards By northwest and cut its course Winds of change be merciful Lest this parting be for nought Bound back toward my homeland Empty hand but new resolve New adventures await me Calm my heart and fill my soul
