Quest for answers

light at the end of a tunnel

A journey of discovery
Love, self, security
Quest for an elusive grail
A vessel worthy of bearing
Each virtue in equal measure

Pilgrimage into the unknown
Searching for the unattainable
Fellow travelers follow the same path
Helping, hindering, hoping
To find their own enlightenment

Bandits and cutpurses
Obstacles and hurdles
Unmarked forks in the road
Lost in unfamiliar terrain
No guide, no map

The stars to navigate
Obscured by storm clouds
A dark moon, an eclipsed sun
Milestones lost in the weeds
Learning to trust intuition

My kingdom for a horse
My wealth for a compass
My sanity for answers
