Lone Pioneer

I am a lone pioneer on a journey I never imagined or wanted

Leaving behind a shared rich experience for a land unknown

This journey is lonely and long and I have no idea in what direction it is leading me

It leads me as I cannot lead it, it calls me wherever and whenever it chooses

And I am compelled to follow in my pain and sorrow

I traverse this new landscape that is unfamiliar and strange

My heart is heavy, my steps are uncertain

It feels like a storm raging and the fog is thick

And I am fearful of what I might or might not find along the way

I want to turn back but there is no turning back

There is no option but to trek on

Until I find a clearing where I can rest and put down roots

Where the sun will shine and something new will grow green within my soul

It really feels much like that. Yes we all have to trek on. An older neighbor lady (also a widow) told me "You're going to be OK, you know why? Because you have to be." I thought it was a strange thing to say but she was right. No matter how hard, we still need to continue on. Like you say, there is no turning back. Nice blog, well done.
