Poem By: Laurence Eaves
“The trail stretched out in my wake,
Marks the path of my trial.
Each centimetre step I take
Will add to make up miles
Where are the stars which shared the load
By lighting up the track;
The wind that used to whip the road
And press upon my back?
Though every weary tread will tire
This body, bruised and sore,
The lonely ache of my desire
Demands me to endure.
Each slow and heavy stroke reminds
Me of how far I’ve come,
From loving faces, left behind
With memories of home.
But I push past the pressure of
This struggle to survive,
And make my mind the measure of
How much I am alive.
The sun now slips down from the skies
And sleeps through the moon’s reign,
But soon, together we will rise
And start the chase again.”
