The Rugged Steps



your sole hits the soul
burnt and battered
bruised and tattered
the worn out edges
tell many a tale
of sighs and fears
that envelop the mansion
in brimming despair

will you walk those rugged steps
again, holding on to faith
and the desire to unscramble a happy note
or will you turn away in fury
hurt and dejected, eager to start afresh
'cause you know broken glasses mend
not two hearts, a faint trail scratching through your dreams
urging for a better tomorrow
