Floating far and long
toward a place ostensibly unknown

It's a hike as perilous as dry eggs from mother
bordering a road familiar to few others
A life of treasure sans lies to find
in this long and long and far far climb
Thorns keep finding toe and heel
sticking around shamelessly irritating thoroughly

If only that place others never see
would be believable, even retrievable, to those other than me
