In the dark of night

I lay here staring out the window

Knowing that the future to come is overwhelming yet so full of possibility

The depths of my soul yearn for the expression of unconditional love

It knows that the dream can be achieved no matter how daunting the task may seem at times

And in that moment without light

Even as the sun is fully down

Light as always makes itself present

Pushing me on to take this life of mine into the forest

And create a ruckus in the leaves of the unknown

The promise has been made

The covenant created

I will do this

    Query: Is forrest meant to be misspelled?

    I dig it man! The tone is grandiose and the imagery flashes in my mind like a sunset.
