When the way is blocked

I confess that today
I can't quite see
how to find my way
from where I am
to where I want to be.
I see the steps
that lead to --
well, God knows where --
but I can't
for the life of me
figure out how to get to them.
And I suppose
I should see these trees
as reaching out to embrace me
but frankly
they look a bit intimidating,
as if each one
is waiting to lift a root,
determined to trip me up
in case the rocks don't do the trick.
