The Valley of Longing

Everyone’s lost

In the valley of longing.

It’s a journey within

When seeking belonging.

*

Looking for something

To put one at ease.

Searching for light

Shining bright through the trees.

*

Down your feet take you

Through mud and deep roots.

Clinging to branches,

As vision dilutes.

*

You slip and you fall,

But you’re ready to see.

The future self’s guidance,

Deep within thee.

*

The journey’s sufficient,

To make you fulfilled.

But right at the bottom,

Is quiet and still.

*

Nothing but clay.

Clay and decay.

The truth of your life

Brings pain and dismay.

*

No inner child,

No voice of the soul.

Yourself cannot guide you

You’re down in a hole.

*

A selfish puddle

Of tears in rain.

With the realisation

You’re lost again.

*

The valley of longing

Traps all the lost.

A prison organic

Where children are tossed.

*

To thine own self be true,

Is a beautiful lie.

You’ll slip down inside,

And true truth will die.

*

How to escape

The valley of longing?

Look to Zion

The city is dawning
