Avenue

The cracks in the pavement

have opened wide,

I have to watch my step

or off I will slide.

My body feels heavy

and too hard to carry

but if I give up now,

I will be laid out

in the cemetery.

I need to find strength

to help me through,

I don’t know why

life has brought me

down this avenue.

My eyes will have to open

if I want to escape

from this dark and

inhospitable landscape.

Please let me find

a path that’s clear

so I can continue my journey

without any more fear.
