OctPoWriMo Day 1 – Dark night of the soul

Dark night of the soul, don’t know who I am
I’m going through life in a pitch black world
Wish to follow a map with diagram

My soul’s on fire and I dance and I furled
Not knowing what to do and where to go
Want to prove I am a man of the world

Letting me be carried as the wind blows
Surely I could stand up for myself
With this brilliant awakening I glow

Despite the chaos I should find oneself
Challenges to take, experience to have
Learning the lesson in and of itself

Responsibility makes me behave
Respect for myself and for others, too
And be oblivious to things I don’t have

Be mindful of trap that I can fall through
Every step I take I swirled and curled
As we brew the coffee and I have you

And as we face the world together
You and me in all types of weather
Dark night of the soul, don’t know who I am
Wish to follow a map with diagram*
