We hobble down hallways
losing heart by the hour,
Hoping the hallowed will always
honor us with their power.
Never outside of this pattern of thought,
Dwelling in the battles we’ve fought,
yet in these hallways we begin.
For when we walk toward the pain,
rather than distract ourselves
or walk away,
we embrace the chance to heal the strain,
and perhaps fight for one more day.
The wounds of this body may not be healed,
Neither those of mine, nor those of yours,
For we hobble down hallways gaining heart,
as truth is revealed by opening doors.
