Dusty Feet

dustyfeetThe road stretches on
Through shallows and shoals
An imitation of life
Fascinating to follow
Complex in detail
With no end in sight
They walk with dusty feet
Trudging blindly on
Wishing for redemption
In a world of lies
Soles cracked and bleeding
With limping gaits
They march onward
To the promised land
Armed with humility
Born from persistence
Awakened by a pain
Complete in its scope
Forcing them to move
Or accept a mortality
That is neither their birthright
Nor their destiny
As they walk on
Toward the distant horizon.
