What Do You See? (Thought) - Poem by Poet of the River

My friend walked through the woods,
and this is what he saw.

He saw a road with many paths to turn,
paths that lead to a dead end.
He saw plenty dead trees with wood to burn,
who's branches cannot bend.
He saw an old abandon cabin,
with a torn and tattered roof,
not a place he would stay in.
just put in some powder, light it, and poof.

This is what i see.

I see a forest who's trees were once green,
just waiting for an adventure to begin.
I see a road with many choices in between,
and a cave a dragon could sleep in.
I see a river ware fish once teemed,
and a comfy cabin on its bank.
I see the wooden hands of a mighty beast,
who was trapped in the mud and sank.
And i see a berry bush hosting a mighty feast.
for you, your friends, and for me.

Now you know our stories,
tell me what you would see.
Is it a journey at its dying end?
Or is the journey about to begin?

    I see a long journey for you both in your personal life and your poems but you should stop asking questions and first look for the answers of the questions you already have (Report) Reply
