you've gone astray, she said,
so far from the path i mapped out for you
i told you, i tried to warn you
outside the path lies danger,
keep to the path, my little one -
here is the map
and i
shall be your compass.

but the path was too narrow,
i told her
and the secret places of the forest
sure looked good to me,
and although i'm grateful, oh
so grateful -
i think i would prefer
to be lost, right now.
