A Poem is a Little Path

A poem is a little path

That leads you through the trees.

It takes you to the cliffs and shores,

To anywhere you please.


Follow it and trust your way

With mind and heart as one,

And when the journey’s over,

You’ll find you’ve just begun.

This poem reflects how I work with poetry. I use poetry as a means to clear the cobwebs of my mind and i find myself discovering more about myself though poetry.
