Destination Unknown – Author Debra McLain


In this journey of life
I sometimes lose direction
goals and expectations
not surveyed on the map.

The road before me crumbles
into an abyss of despair
no longer do I understand
why, when or where.

Free falling in the dark
grasping for the edge
life and promise evade me
doubts are found instead.

A small flicker of light
in the corners of my mind
become a shining beacon
sadness bursts into flames.

Fear cannot restrain me
my fire burns bright
love takes over the wheel
no longer do I drive.
