Smokescreens in the Desert

I walked for so many centuries/ For so many centuries I walked and found nothing/ on the inside/ On the inside is where I should have been searching/ I walked for thousands of centuries/ I stopped tracing my steps once I noticed I made a ring/ a ring with my footprints/ I was just circling/ tracing the outlines/ outside of my own mind/ in fear of my own thoughts surfacing/ I walked for millions of centuries/ I walked and found nothing/ but trampled pavement/ flattened foreground/ I took a chance on not a thing/ Not a thing will change me/ All of this walking/ all of this distance only to find/ my direction is aimless/ My mission is empty/ empty as my steps/ empty as my mind
