The Trail

She was trapped in the middle of the forest.... the forest so dense that the greenery around her scared her instead of making her happy. The dark green curtain around her hid light from her... the tiny patches of light seemed inadequate to guide her way... she felt lost, afraid... the unfamiliar noises made her jump.... she wanted to scream, but realized that she couldnt. She walked aimlessly, too afraid to cry, too afraid to call out for help... the darkness of the forest setting in on her....
Until she saw a small path leading into a clearing....the small patch of sunlight she saw made her cry out in happiness...those rays seemed more precious to her than the most precious of stones... and at the end of the clearing was a path, a trail that seemed to be leading somewhere, sunlight guiding the way.... somewhere away from this dark forest which she had decided to walk into...
She looked back at the forest behind her, indecision tearing her apart, and took the first step towards light....and walked forward, without a second glance behind, stepping on to the barely there path, washing herself in the beautiful rays...following the trail, the trail that will take her away from the dark, dark forest and into sun light, into happiness....into hope.
