SURVIVING

There’s a moment of shade for

everyone.

A chance to reflect familiar breezes and

places of safety integrated from youth.

Deep nostalgia draws exiles of thought

searching for an outpost nearby,

though just out of reach.

It’s the thread left behind.  A footprint

of passage, the search to discover

the end where there are layers of dust and

words.  The space of ancestry is the void

between the lines, the shadow we carry

to the other side.

Enduring prevents the loss of soul.

Forever is only infamous if you survive.
