A Journey Continued

Twisted and torn

Mangled and soiled

Tired and worn

Courage recoiled


This middle age

My survivor’s guilt

Comfortable cage

Wild youth built


Beginning the end?

Finding second wind

How to pretend?

Joy to live


Lessons learned

Some with regret

Grand bridges burned

Many an unpaid debt


Puzzle in progress

Each piece a match

A life not less

Future needs past


Grateful not alone

My journey companions

Help me atone

Inspiring actions


Unable simply to lie

Face not low

Will not quietly die

Onwards I go


Doomsday come

Fate I will meet

Continuing to run

On my two feet
