I went on this path one day – off the straight and narrow way
looking to find the unknown - unafraid to be alone
a skip in my stride - my smile a mile wide
passion perspiring inside.
Suddenly! There’s a shadow - beside my own.
“It can’t be so!” No one came with me, I know.
Nobody else wished to go.
Who could it be then? How shall I begin?
Where did it happen and when?
