Amidst untamed wilds, where shadows do dance
The Wilderness calls with its silent trance
A world unchained, where freedom is sung
Its echoing voice, by nature's tongue
I hear it call, that primeval plea
A summons so fierce, a call to be Free.
Despite the hardships, the rugged path
I heed its call, dispelling its wrath
For in its heart, a solace reigns
A peace untouched by mortal pains
A sanctuary where my soul takes flight
In the realm where the day meets the night.
The Wilderness, a stern domain
Its brutal rules, its rugged terrain
Yet I press forth, with spirit ablaze
Seeking wisdom in its untamed maze
For midst the struggle, a truth unfolds
My own mortality, stark and bold
The fleeting years, like stars they fade
Yet in The Wilderness, no fear pervades.
Embracing death with a steady grace
I find a refuge in its embrace
For life and death, like rivers, flow
In The Wilderness, their secrets show
A whisper in the rustling leaves
A sacred hush, my spirit receives
I see and hear, in every sound
The presence of God - profound.
In every howl of wind and beast
In every sunset's fiery feast
The Wilderness, a temple grand
Where God's Creation takes its stand
So though The Wilderness may bear its strife
And test the limits of mortal life
I journey on, with heart unswayed
In its wild embrace, I find God's shade.
