28 (who?)
In travels that I've yet to plan
and plan, I never will,
down miles of unfamiliar trails
I'll venture on until

my feet should find a forest's edge
of twisted branch and root,
the shadow of its overgrowth
awaiting my pursuit.

And though the trees shall warn me,
"you will walk beside your fear;
for many braver than yourself
have lost their way in here"

my trembling hands will steady;
I'll accept the truths I've heard,
and if fate should bid I enter
I'll walk forward undeterred.
Gasp, it's a writing! :omg:

This is the first thing I've written in I don't even know how long. But the final two stanzas have been in my head for months and never went away, so I figured I'd do something with them. I know it's very simple and perhaps a bit dull, feel free to critique if you like. :meow:

Anywho, for the past year or so, with the inspiration of a wonderful man, I've been learning how to conquer fear. It's taken me to some incredible places, and I can't wait to see what the future holds. :)

Thanks for reading, photos will resume within the next day or two.

The cadence feels a bit like "The Road Goes Ever On and On", if you know what I mean. ;) Very Tolkeiny of you.
