The Tiresome Walk

The air is firm
And the ground
Steadfast and silent
Though my breath is shallow
And my head swims
And though my footing is unsure
I lean in
I push through the billows
The floor catches my fall
All I know is
To let me lungs expand
And move forward

And sometimes that is all this day requires
Because a day is a stepping stone
Plain gray and rough on the feet
But they intermingle
With patches of cool, soft grass
And are often lined with dandelions and daisies

Enjoy my writing? Buy me a coffee 🙂
