A Long Journey



It seemed forever and ever
Will this narrow path last?
questionable and not real
time has passed
a long narrow valley
tall hills were climbed
as thoughts were gathered
a dream, as awakened at the moment
now has all gone
along the rivers and gates that opened
a change made
lifetime, eternity life
Hope found.
