It is a long road stretching out until dawn and I am trudging this road from dusk until morn.

It is a straight road with a steep drop to the side, you can see for miles both far and wide.

It is a cold road as I travel on never knowing where I am going or where I am from.

Heading on towards the dawn towards the sunrise and the morn. I do not know what is in store I only know that I want more.

Stand here just before the sun decides to rise and lighten up the now grey skies. I see the early birds in flight as they bid farewell to the night.

I close my eyes and breath in the fresh cold air, my bare feet pound this road to who knows where. I am lost and fearful help me, find me,  have a care.

    Loved this one
    reminded me of a poem..can’t recall the author but it was about the house on the side of the road, where some one built it, on a long stretching highway, offerin lemonade to those who venture down the road of life, and at the end, the owner of the house relays, he go tired of going down the road and settle here, to refresh others on their journey. (~_~)

    You are on a road and moving. That’s to be celebrated.
