Taking the leap, just to fall down

Staying one way, you begin to be stuck

Turning around, you want to look back

The plants grow, wither, and eventually begin to brown

Keeping down a path with no real roots

On this path, you walk alone

With dark and gloomy spaces

No fair flowers nor sweet berry fruits

Not a bitter frosty cold

Not a boiling summer sauna 

Just the empty dry air that gets caught in our throats

The one that keeps us coughing to remind us 

We’re getting old

Still, you keep trekking this path

Determined to see something in the distance

A glimmer, a trickle, a bright spot

Knowing that somewhere the air is clear

That this impetuous darkness will end its wrath

No matter how treacherous 

No matter how empty 

No matter the cost

No matter how hard it is to walk

Deep inside you know 

It’s the path worth walking 

Even if it’s just a chance 

For the glimmer to come

Like the wind that blows

Hi my names Amanda G! I'm a junior at Kutztown University and have a enormous sweet tooth. I want everyone to live and laugh. Hopefully my stories will help with that. I believe in the truth and the brighter side of life. I also believe in the power of Bagel Bar on Mainstreet, which is truly a gift. So sit back, relax, and be you at KU and in life.
