A Person is like a tree, the trunk is the body, the branches are a journey and the leaves are the opportunities or people in life. People and opportunities come and go just like leaves fall and grow back. There are many journeys in life and growth...

As I look outside the window
I see a vast eternal darkness
waiting and lurking as I go by
it seems to be calling out to me
I listen and think about it
but am I suppose to jump out?
and embrace the darkness
or should I simply pass by it
without a hesitation in the air
all these choices are confusing
should I just accept my fate
the darkness wants my spirit
to fill in the vacant air
surrounding the mountains
as which it surrounds me...
these thoughts makes me
not want to have a brain
to imagine this scary side of me!

This piece was inspired by a car ride home in the dark where the mountains look like invitations to me.
