One Foot in Front and One to Follow

It's more than you think

and all that you know

simple steps taken
so long ago...

One foot in front,
the other to follow.
So much left to learn..
but too much to swallow.

Worthiness pleads her case
on dreams never returned

eyes focused on surviving
with a mind that's been burned.

Taken beyond graveyards
only emptiness to offer..
splitting atoms of flesh and bone..
dripping blood to a coffer.

You taught me so well 
everything except how to forget.
infinite ways to kill and maim..
all consuming pain and regret

Now dusty road beckons me..
come take the steps you need.
One foot in front, the other will follow

and a broken heart left to bleed
