The Lost Traveler - Poem by shotayo kehinde

Curiosity brought me out on a sunny day
I traveled far to a strange country
The paths were full of obstacles
I got lost on my way
I was reproached by unknown enemies
I was mad at by those sworn against me
My heart is smitten and withered like grass
I am like a pelican of the wilderness
For I have eaten fear like bread
And mingled my drink with weeping
I cried like an innocent baby coming out of the womb
I am withered like grass
When all seems lost
Hope was the only way I found to return home
