Out of the Lonely Forest I Go

Melani LeonApril 1, 2020NaturePoetry

Into the forest I go
Sadness surrounds me
The wind whispers in my ear
“It's alright”
The tall trees are like skyscrapers
Wandering around the forest
Lost in my thoughts
Asking myself how do I get out of here?

How can I leave the forest of loneliness?

Out of the forest I go
Butterflies flying, flowers blooming
The sun is bright and warm
But the world is black and blue
Where people like me face reality
Deeper and deeper
Into the forest I go
