Don't Give Up

Vintage Words

.

The last straw is laughing

as the thread snaps

and you fall in again.

Climb out. Reweave

more twigs.

.

Persistant as bird wings

forever as sky, swing high

and tease clouds. Let

the feathers fall. No

trail is ever lost.

.

Ends and means warm.

High meets low in the middle.

Come, the invitation is unopened

and autographed with signatures 

of courage and encouragement.

.

Unrelent. Sweat, strain,

then sweat again. There

is no goal, only the trek.

Let drops of water course

the neck. Keep up. Rest

is for death.

.

Passion is more than fruit,

more than shade and sleep.

Leave the weary to dust.

Push the stalled car aside,

pound a path to the end

of the pavement, then

buy a map.
