The Hard Road

~~ 1 ~~
 
as if the hard road
were nothing more than spirit
shifting in a breeze
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
as if the hard road
with all its cracks and bruising
could convey us hence
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
as if the hard road
could be negotiated
by instinct alone
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
as if the hard road
on which we staggered last night
would be smooth today
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
as if the hard road
would not hamper our footsteps
leading us astray
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
as if the hard road,
its tilt and awkward angle,
would not deter us
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
as if the hard road
could not keep pilgrims awake
as they journey on
 
~~ 8 ~~
 
as if the hard road
were the last place that we smiled
for a thousand years
