Out of the Woods

There’s strength in numbers
And wisdom in colleagues
The whispering winds that blow
around all day suddenly settle down
Long enough for you blow some hot
air around
The hovering sun seeks you out but
you find some cooler shadows for a moment
You sit and settle down and breathe
instead of sigh
The city skyscape just outside
It’s familiar but you’ve never seen
it in this way before
The colors are brighter and the
streets are more inviting
The passing faces are more friendly
and more comforting
Everybody is an opportunity
Every street another way to get
there
It doesn’t matter if you get lost ‘cause
you get lost every journey you take
But you always get there
Sometimes more sweaty sometimes
more out of breath
But oh the sights
Oh the sounds
Your friends stand around and seek
you out and remind you
For a moment you’re reminded
Teased and tormented you realize is
just time ticking and people having fun
One life and to spread a little joy
is kinda cool
Remember this as you go
Remember these times
Remember coming out of the woods
Feeling good
Dance for the moment and drive downhill
and don’t look back
Spread some love and some joy
Daylight still feels great
And the city night lights still
warm your soul
Still settling in to this sort of
place
So go on and keep at a steady pace
