Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 9.19.04 amI am always alert, always watching

I wait to begin my journey.

resting silently on the undergrowth

of which is coloured green and ferny.

now that the waiting is over

I am ready for a change.

I stumble my fist steps in silence

climbing down the mounted range.

but silently, always silent.

soft footsteps follow my lead,

and there’s a trail behind me

visible within the reed.

this blackened forest,

which once was home,

is now nothing but silence

But i survived on my own

my only companion is the silence left behind.
