The woods

It was the voice of darkness
whispering in my ear
that told me to trust my fears
and run away from here
“Believe me” he said
“these woods are waiting for your death,
so let your mind lead your feet
and drag your body out of here”
I looked around
and was surprised to find myself
in the midst of dark green trees
all bending over me
Surely I had never seen
anything as amazing as this
as I am a Child of the City
grown up between my fellow brothers
and fell in love with my sweet sisters
But strangely enough I instantly felt at ease
entangled in these trees
Until this day I still regret
that I’ve only seen these woods in dreams.
