The Woods

No water was left to bring life to this place
I found myself drifting, lost again in space
So I floated, left my past without a trace…

I walked in the woods, following a path
To a river full of fury and wrath
But I was shocked to see, I couldn’t believe
The river had drained, no fish could ever live

But I continued the journey, wandering
Searching for a paradise while humming
A sad melody with no tune, no hue
Then I was lost in the woods without a clue

So I walked back to the path of the river
Tracking my steps before headed to nowhere
But it seemed I was just going deeper
Into the woods where I was lost forever

Escape To Oblivion

I wish to wander in oblivion
To float in the air towards the unknown
To be lost in space then drift away
I want to escape and be gone for days

Let me journey into nothingness
Let me travel and forget the mess
No looking back, leaving all behind
Go to some place and empty my mind

I need to explore the oblivion
I need my retreat and be alone
To be far so I can dream away
So please, just please! Take me away!

Drifter

A log floating in the river
Headed to a destination
It is a journey to nowhere
We are all drifters

A lone fish swimming with the tide
Hit by the waves, hit by the rocks
Fighting for a chance to survive
We are all drifters

A lost soul flowing in a dither
Simply wanders with the current
Awash by griefs and burden
Indeed, I am a drifter
