Leave This Place

I leave this place
Unto the bitter cold
Of a familiar unknown
Howling winds, frozen
Horizons out of reach
In all directions
Setting out, leaning
For feeble toeholds
In the frost, the ice, snow
Heeding an understanding
Seeking absolution,
Forgiveness, reason.
These buried emotional needs.
I leave this place.
We all face these tests.
Alone, as once we left them
Again returning to seek the way
Back to the sacred
To home, to rest, to home
I leave this place.
