Way Back

I looked
At a barren landscape
And wondered
How can this be?
My life was meant
To be elsewhere
In lushness 
And evergreen
To go forward
Was deadly
No good could be found
My hope
Was back where I came
So I stopped going forward
And made my way back
Fighting through
The guilt and the shame
Where did I leave me?
Where did I go?
I returned
To the scene of my time
I made my way back
To the place
I once was
And my hope again I did find
