through these woods I walk alone
Its midnight and Iím alone
Walking out into the woods with no light
I am guided by not fearing the unknown
For to long I have been afraid of not knowing
This future I am to have, I canít see it
I walk with one solemn purpose
To physically split my body and mind from every fear Iíve ever known
Darkness, decay, death
There is no path worn in these woods
No easy way out, trust me it was more difficult finding the first step in
Iíve learn from others mistake more than mine, but Iíve made my share
There is no turning back now
I promised myself I wouldnít but still left scorched earth behind me to ensure it
Life is a frontier; every moment is like new uncharted territory
These woods are like that
Brown dead leaves at my feet
Green leaves signifying fertility above my head
And each step I take, brings the two closer together
Iím not afraid of perhaps looking back through the flames Iíve set
For I have no regrets
Iíve paid my debts and walk alone, assured, and independent
Itís so dark here, alone in these woods
Not even the moon is looking out for me
The stars have been clouded but my intentions remain steadfast
Rumors of an ancient burial ground lie somewhere ahead of me
I hear what seems to be human voices and know there shouldn't be
But this is what I came here for
You know of my intention but of my motivation you know nothing
And you never will

I will not be afraid of anything any longer

Author's Notes:
on a night thats pitch black go into the woods. alone. let your fears go. only then can u be free. what ever your intention is, whatever ur motivation is over come every fear you have.

scary and reminds me of that ugly movie "Hills have eyes" I almost ended up seeing(i saw like half of it). But I am not saying the POEM is ugly!!!! I like it a lot, I just wish I had never seen that movie.

I love the last line and "Green leaves signifying fertility above my head"... life's not so bad when you give it a chance.....

Wow... this is a very intriguing idea. That would scare the bejeezes out of me... walking in the woods at night and just letting your imagination roam. I love how this poem is a big metaphor but can also be taken quite literally. Fantastic write!
