Lone Wolf

Sometimes you need to walk alone
Turn away from safety, from good advice 
and warm lights

And walk uphill to a strange and barren land 
where no one lives
and nothing seems familiar

And in that far away place
where nature mocks your soft, indulgent ways
Rock and air will strip you naked,
crush your pride, 
blow away your life story
written in tears and blood, 
like a worthless piece of paper

And you will look inside 
and find nothing 
but a raw and open heart
holding the entire universe
