Age: 12

I am on a trail
Trying to track the best path
Where I might find
Some shelter, love, and warmth.

Sometimes I find myself surrounded by darkness
In an alien and hostile land.
I look all around and am frightened.

There is also a place
Where I am surrounded by family and people I know,
They embrace me and protect me from the darkness
That unnerves and frightens people.

There are other times
When I am preoccupied by my problems
And I find myself in a place I do not recognise,
Lost in my thoughts.

Even there I always end up finding myself
Turning to the right path
The path lit by happiness and love.
