On the roads that lead to nowhere

The way is long, the path uneven.
A lone traveller, tried and driven.
Unchartered roads, dark and dank.
Life’s new chapter, pages blank.
Scared inside, anxious, terrified.
With every desire to run and hide.
A journey taken by so many before,
But the voyager can’t help abhor.
All that this wanderer needs,
To make this journey ever so sweet;
Perhaps, an ally close to the heart.
Dauntless, determined, street-smart.
A constant, confidant, a bestie.
Hand in hand even when life is testy.
A journey with the heart’s consent,
Will make the wayfarer feel content.
