                                                      the path
                                                      no echo

                                     I don’t think I ever noticed
                                     the path out of youth
                                     even while I was treading it
                                     even while I was arming myself
                                     with the ideals and attitudes
                                     I had brought with me

                                     I carry these heavy weights
                                     because of the rarefied atmosphere
                                                                      up here
                                              value-bled
                                              compromised

                                     it always ever was
                                     and is easy to just set it all down
                                     then skip along carefree
                                     but I have strapped it all to me
                                              tightly
                                     defined myself as someone
                                     who does not compromise

                                     and now at 50
                                     I am weary and weak
                                     I see no view
                                     I stare to the ground
                                     to keep the pack on my back

                                     my true path out of
                                     Youth and Resistance
                                                                                    I realise now
                                     is to breathe
                                     out and let it all go
                                     before I breathe
                                     back in again
