Walk On*

You walk on
Through the darkest night
Because that is where
The next morning is

You bob and drift
On the ocean’s waves
Because that is where
The shore of reality is

You trudge forward
Through the winter’s snows
Because that is where
The spring's first bloom is

You ramble through
The thick brambly forest
Because that is where
The sweetest fruit is

You clamber up
The tall craggy mountain
Because that is where
The bliss of solitude is

You wander and roam
The city’s lonely streets
Because that is where
The warmth of home is

You toil hard
To get through the day
Because that is where
The joy of fulfillment is

You walk on
Through great adversity
Because to stop 
Is to cease to be
