earth: move, 4

The destination is far,
that is certain.

There will be moments
when we find ourselves
in a joyous sprint

There will be moments
when we can barely
imagine another step

There will be thirst
and breathlessness

There will be the
urge to return to
that which is
familiar and simple,

to turn around,
to turn back,
to decide
the path is
too hard

but once
the journey
is begun

it is always
inside us;

do not worry

we will get there.
