Sleepless mind racing.


Last night was one of many when sleep was at a premium. Nevertheless, my mind was all over the place and this popped into it.


The legs aflame

In motion and repose

The feet of ice

And stony indifference

The eyes of the crowd

As we lumber and lurch

One uncertain step to another.

A desire for respect

And understanding.

The issue of right

And true respect.

The question of why

And how.

Ambition to rise

And conquer the beast.

The candle of hope

Forever the reason

To fight on.
