Hope in Transit

It won’t be long now
ominous and innocent
a declaration of change
born of terror within

You’ve been running
long enough for the loop
to catch your fall
for momentum to carry

This initial inertial rejection
will hit the hardest
legs tracing traction
on uncooperative ground

It will be as mud for years
till you generate enough heat
to bake the ground again
running into the void

Falling now will be different
it will be graceless and complete
with so many places to land
It won’t be long
