Trail of Verse

The Trail is yours as mind and heart and eyes in Life ensue
endure to dusty depths or cling to heights in mist,
in words line your days with packed mules
in one more verse convey upon the world ethereal grist

Though some wish you'd crouch in fearful state
entombed in deep dank hole of woe,
and say your frantic letters singe each day your fate,
and you're mute, you're standing on your own.

Silence keeps the never-mastered man,
and covers him from rainy ridicule
They saw him scoff at common scoffed bribes
for him petty Hunger's soon relief,
and Thirst's quick quench, was dry.

Through him the ages' restless roots spread out
his eyes saw nought in pride-filled lie stacked high
his feet found shade and watered paths through mist,
and one day the Summit's view he glimpsed.
