Surviving in the wilderness

Peacefully lost

a friend said
and it rang true

like home

they say that young children
under a certain age
have the best chance 
of surviving if they become lost

they say it's because
those children
the young ones
haven't yet learned
to live outside themselves

they say those children
the younger ones
survive because they don't 
because they aren't lost

"I'm right here"
the children say
the young ones

Peacefully Lost
