valleys to the heart – Marciel Laquindanum

i wish i could find my way
but instead i found myself
in the valley of indecision
where the rivers never end
and the mountains never peak

in the valley i saw a depression
that is longer than it is wide
but also a path that was well worn
as if it was a path walked many times

i stopped for a moment
and saw flowers that grew beautifully
because they were watered by the tears
that were wept along the way

there i saw in the reflection of the river
people who found their emotions
and cried because they saw them
for the first time and at that moment
          i knew

those before me needed to cross the valley
to see what was in their heart
so now i walk through this valley
with their flowers in my hand
ready to see what is in mine
