Imprinted in the marrow of the soul
is a longing for a road
that impels our steps
in unison, without hesitation
with the certainty of destination
that gives each stride purpose
and each milestone meaning

a journey traversing winding valleys
and transient summits
towards a selfless horizon
that softens every hard place
and humbly prevails
against all odds

and the vision that illuminates
even as each dark step falls
