The one most worth making

The long walk to freedom began

before freedom had a name

and those that thirst for righteousness have

been walking since the time of our most

unfamiliar ancestors.

Each person begins to walk

when the dawn breaks on an

otherwise placid day –

The yearning beckons

to rise above their fate.

Contorted, the path bears

no signs, and often circles back

to the beginning.

The walkers wane, legs grow sore and strained.

In such times there is one who walks alone

though now long past weary –

they shine defiant

because of all the journeys in history

this is the one most worth making.
