Where I want to be

I look for a forest that isn’t there,

and run on a plain that doesn’t exist.

My mind shows me mountains as I run on the plain,

and my heart shows me rivers through that forest.

What is it that is calling to me in these wildernesses?

Where is it that I want to be?

I flee from a past I hope to forget

and search for a future I’ll always want to remember.

I cry as I look, because I can’t seem to find it

Whatever it is I am looking for.

Should I turn back, should I retrace my steps?

I am unsure of where I must go.

I look left and I look right,

and no path is laid before me.

So I move forward, going neither left nor right,

and I find exactly what I was looking for.
