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.
