Poem a Day Challenge #43 (Walk of Knives)

Walk of Knives

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Our heart leads onwards to our dreams
Our mind towards our goals
While we wend the road between
That cuts our very soles.

Today we thanked the man
Who tightened up the chains
That ties us to our solid home
For someone else’s gains

If only our hearts and minds agreed
The road could be wide and straight
Let’s hope we find the map we need
Before it is too late
