To plan an escape
from the noises in my mind
Yelling for the answers
I wanted to find,
I began an expedition towards North
With a part of the compass we bought
To walk together on this magical journey
but, the road we took split into two,
And the compass broke as if it knew
That I have to walk alone,
What direction is this?
Am I going nowhere?
Or nowhere is somewhere I ought to be?
Do the paths revolve like planets?
North is not there,
where it used to be.
