Breadcrumbs

I trace the steps
I’ve taken
I know the path
so well

I drop breadcrumbs
in the forest
on the dark and
dusty trail

In hopes those
who’re lost
in this labyrinth
called pain

Will gather bits
to feed themselves
This journey’s
not in vain

The brambles
we are bound within
the thickets
where we’re caught

Are chances
to prove ourselves
to live and trust
heart and thought

We can conquer
all we face
with skill and
intellect

We are but one
in this universe
with breadcrumbs
to collect
