I ran away today,
to the woods, to the trees, to the nature that had beckoned me.
It is here I plan to stay for a day, for a week,
possibly eternity. I see the vastness of the world
in its beauty, and its splendor, and regard it with an admiration so tender.
I can feel how tiny I am, how little, how small,
and I know I don’t have power over it all. And yet I am significant
as a creature, as a being, in this wonderful world that I am seeing.
I was created with a purpose, a goal, a meaning,
and it is here, in these woods, in these trees,
that I intend to find it.
