The Trek

Every breath a silent song,
Each step a symphony,
Leading us closer to the apus,
The sanctuary above,
Clothed in the nubes,
We are hidden from the world,
And only our voices
Anchor us to this world
At night,
When our bodies ache,
The constellations above
Remind us why we are here
The North Star gently lulling
Us to sleep,
Waiting to guide us
Again in the morning.
