Run to The Woods.

At 16:

As I cried on my bed, after my first broken heart.

An admonition floated through my window and into the room.

“Run to the woods and whisper into the wind.”

I venture into the woods under a quarter moon.

I whispered into the wind my every thought and concern.

What will the future hold?

At  18:

As I wiped my tears on my graduation gown.

After all the excitement had become miffed.

An admonition floated through the brisk wind and crowds.

“Run to the woods and whisper into the wind.”

I ventured into the woods and under a tall oak tree,

I whispered my worries for my future and making my family proud.

At 21:

As I sat in the bar alone at three a.m.

and attempted to configure at which point my life had gone so adrift.

An admonition floated through the cloud of smoke and spilled alcohol.

“Run to the woods and whisper to the wind.”

I ventured into the woods on hopelessly frigid winter night.

and I whispered how everything had gone astray.

At 25:

As I moved out of my ex-fiancé’s house.

My world , freshly torn apart.

An admonition floated past the stacked boxes of memories.

“Run to the woods and whisper to the wind.”

I ventured into the woods on a rainy night under a dark sky.

and I whispered how I’d lost myself in searching for the perfect life I could never have.

At 30:

As I sat across from my husband and little girl at lunch,

I realized how suddenly, and without warning, my life’s puzzle pieces were fitting together.

An admonition floated past the toys and piled dishes.

“Run to the woods and whisper to the wind.”

I ventured into the woods one last time.

On a sunny day, I sat in the forest of my backyard,

and I whispered a final “thank you” to the woods that soothed my soul so many times before.

Through,

a broken heart,

Miffed excitement,

As  life went adrift,

My world being torn to shreds,

The woods listened to me.

And now, they listen to my daughter.
