Poetry

The unknown slipper

 

Ali Zandi
October 12, 2004

The long journey lies ahead in its vastness
Eventually ending in utter joy or bitterness
Determined to find my jewel and cherish it forever
The greatest hurdle I will jump over and stop never
I will conquer and roam through the darkest forest
And ride the fiercest stream, passing every test
To complete my life, it is you I need
But the longer I search, the more I bleed

The search goes on, days of hot, days of cold
As this old watch reminds me I'm getting old
But I would rather die searching
Than give up and regret failing
I would give up all my days, from today until my death
For one chance to share with you one single breath
