Where I Will Stop

I’m on my way

Cars are racing past
some leave unwanted speckles
but I’ll keep going
Each stride takes me closer

The cloudburst is drenching
Cold arrows pierce my bones;
Sometimes it’s the wrath of the sun
that sears all over
But I’ll keep going

My limbs are aching
They’ve been dashed
against innumerable pebbles,
along this curvy way
But I’ll keep going

And I’ll keep going
right on my way
Because it’s my course

These voices
will rant over and again
But I’ll keep going

I know where I’ll stop
It’s not halfway
through the line
but at the end
of the journey.
