Busy Mind #14


She checked her map again

Excitement coursed through her

Where is Shady Valley-the place of the shadow of death?

Maybe this wasn’t the right way

Discouragement fatigued her

She took one wrong turn

She was glimpsing a new world

The vision faded

She took a deep breath

She kicked at a rock

Fighting to keep her balance

Tomorrow would tell

If she lived or died

Her soul too strong

To die in her fragile flesh.
