the journey

then suddenly
a wall of fire
rose
separating the path ahead
from the roadmap
etched inside their minds

one moment
was the time it took

plans cherished
month on month
gone

and now the path
runs sideways
up
with hills to climb

~

alone
inside
where each one dwells
what thoughts arise

one moment
air is light to breathe
then gravity
like a weight from nowhere

how could they not be tempted
sometimes
to turn away

~

the breath
when taken
seeks for strength
resolve lives in each others eyes
a turn towards
the steeper slope
a step taken
side by side

the crisis is gone
and a way revealed

perhaps
this is the journey
