My Final Step

The day is about to end

Finally, I am close to taking my rest.

As I look back at the road I traversed

I cannot help but let tears burst

As it had not been an easy walk.


I paced more than a thousand miles

I strode, I marched, and even had to hike.

I fell off a cliff, my leg badly wounded.

I climbed up a mountain, I fought for breath

I crossed the bridge, my heart violently pounded.


Finding the main road seemed a consolation,

To my surprise, it was an even more dangerous course

Arrows sling, gun flaks attack

My chest started to bleed

My feet are unmoved.


I crouched- my nose against the dirt

I raised my head- saw the end of the road

I mustn’t give up, one last mile to toddle

I started to crawl, my whole body hurt

It did not matter, I had to go


Cold breeze tossed my hair

Piercing pain struck through my veins

I gazed ahead; a few steps from the end….

I looked at the sky- it was no longer grey.

I saw the road, it seemed safe


I summon the last of my strength….,


I stand tall…


I take a deep breath…


I take a bow…


As I now take my final step.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
