Wilderness

29 Jun

VulturesThere is a wilderness that
no one can access, except for
a select few, and even then
they cannot imagine how far
and wide it stretches or how
different it is from their own world.
They assume what the rest of
the wilderness is based on
is what little they’ve seen,
but they have no idea.
With snakes ready to poison,
vultures waiting for death,
and lizards hiding in the sand.
No one understands this place.
Not even those who live in it.
This wilderness is my mind.
