Duty Calls

the years flash by

while each day stretches

on an indefinite meandering path

yet the path is well worn

she steps in foot marks made yesterday

reinforcing those from the day before

sometimes she wishes to leave the path

but duty keeps her on the same trail

and all the while she can see the end

creeping a little closer to her destination

shedding desires and wishes and dreams as she goes
