Into The White

My heavy black coat protects me from
The freezing temperature.
Strolling into nothingness, I walk on, just
Entering the pure blankness.

A big tree ahead stands out,
Like the dash of color on an empty canvas.
I suppose I’d stand out too,
For someone on the other
Side.

The heavy winds pick up the snow and
Throw it in my face.

I can’t even remember when I began my walk, and
I feel that I’ll fall back.
Aimlessly, I trudge through all
This snow and bitter weather,
Seeking warmth within some
Place.

What’s beyond the white,
I’m not quite sure.

But I continue stumbling through.
I just hope I’ll get to know.
