When the fog is so thick,
That it blinds you,
And you can’t see the path ahead,
Walk forward anyway.
It’s just gloom, not a Gate that blocks your way,
And what else is there to do
but walk?

You came here searching for something,
And you haven’t found it yet,
Or may be you were running from something,
But you haven’t gotten anywhere,
Both viable reasons to come here,
And you have come too far to walk away,
So walk.

When you are lost, the only way
Is to keep walking until you find your way.
Eventually, you get where you were going,
Or sometimes you get someplace better,
That makes the journey worth while.
It’s about the journey anyway,
So walk.
