Regrowth

By Aarron Mondello

Heart beat racing with those first steps
Away down a lonely road
All is silent and watchful about
Can you hear your breath echo?

What phantoms of days long since past
Walk beside you here
What memories of long forgotten lives
Through the shadows peer

An open stretch of road to nowhere
Reclaimed by nature’s hand
On to an unseen horizon
For off in this unknown land

Where once the cancerous human walked
Bringing with it desolation
Now grows green with earthen heart
A slow paced restoration
