Happier Times

He remembers
this forest,
this place,
these sounds

He’s been here
before in happier
times

Now it’s dark
and the trees
bend in toward
him

Noises once
pleasant cause
despair to
arise

He’s walking,
now running,
now crying,
now falling

And then
looking up
he finally
sees

the
sun.

  1. I love both this one and Surrounded. I like the image that this paints of a man falling on his own and then looking up and seeing light. The light and the hope that only come from God :]
