Dusty Poetry #88

Hi, welcome to the DustyWrites subsection of DustyReviews.com. If you like what you read and you would like to read more, the rest of my creative offerings are HERE.


My Body

Rise up, dear body, face the day
Refuse to let fatigue hold sway
Dare to venture, be active
You’ve life to live and much to give
Left foot forward, then the right
Your journey lasts until it’s night
Walk hard, good body, but be wise
Know where your outer limit lies
You once flew fast with eagle’s wings
When then you drank from youthful springs
But now you’re aged, and not yet home
With many miles left to roam,
And crucial matters to attend —
Press on, my body, ’til the end.
