long kilometers of a troubled road

 

i am the feet that
walk the surface of
the earth where
orange is the sun and
green are the trees

i learn to paint
poetry on the leaves
of many papers
stuck on notes
and mother knows

long is the fear
when the expectations
are clueless and i am
totally confused
on this troubled road

i scare the skies
of darker dawns
and whispers of
my insides gossip
long-term setbacks

i keep walking
ignoring the
upset life
on this road of
long kilometers
