Road to Self

He started by making a map of all the possible roads
and decided to take them all.

After a long, spiraling and tangled journey,
somewhere between night and day, he lost himself.

But he kept his calm
and when the sun was up, as it usually does,
everything seemed real and luminous once more,
and the road was found again.

And then dusk came,
a million floating candles danced in the air,
he didn't know whether it was fireflies or his thoughts...

Near the end of the road he stopped.
Bright stars shined above him illuminating the night sky,
and the world was smooth like a dream of the universe.
And then and there, he met himself.
