Walking






Lost with nowhere to go

Losing hope



Continue trudging


Searching




Is that something?


A cabin?


Shelter?



No… it is a mirage


It is getting icy

I have to be careful

Must find food
Need to rest



Too cold

Too dangerous

Are those voices I hear?

No


I need help


HELP!!!



HELP!!! echoes back
There is no one

I am scared


Must plan something
Icicles form on my cheeks
It is snowing harder
I am getting colder
I cannot feel my fingers
It is getting too hard to walk
My teeth are chattering
It has been too long
No one will find me now
I have to save myself
There appears to be a road
The snow was deep as the 12’ end of a pool
The road is icy
Need snow shoes
Need warmer clothes
Thinking about happy things
Food, family, shelter, warmth
Must get home
Pray
Hope
Keep trying
Believe
