Climb up the steepest hill
and peer into the gazed abyss
Watch the crowded, gated masses
and realize your own predicament
for a now no-longer-present friend
The choice is clear.
The gentle slope presents itself
a clear and worn down path of mediocrity.
While the wooden path conceals itself
yet invites you in alone.
A perilous return to whom you once believed yourself to be
