We tread together
Along this circular
Our journey
Never ceasing.

Walk; kneel
Stand; prone
Extreme; center
Ebb; flow
Coming; Going 
Close; distant
Fatigue; rest
Death; Life
Self; Other
Imprisoned; Set free
Lost; discovery
Lead; follow
Anxiety; peace
In; out  
Disjointed; rhythm
Confusion; revelation

Meet me in this labyrinth.
Teach me to walk;
To walk free,
In full stride,
The stride of life.
