Written by Alex Hicks and HastyWords

The rocks were sharp

Bruising the soles of my feet

The walk was long

And the path was steep


I felt lost

Abandoned hope

As I tried to climb

That rocky slope


On my own I struggle

Ascending higher

Looking for wisdom

Pieces of knowledge to acquire


I reached a cliff face

Jagged and worn

I gazed at the top

My confidence scorned


Motivation diminished

I sat to rest awhile

Contemplating the direction

My confusion wrapped in denial


To find another path

Would be to admit defeat

With a swig from my canteen

I returned to my feet.


The sun rose to light my way

The air full of singing sparrows

A smile met my lips and I knew

Here is where I’ve left my sorrows
