“To Walk from Here to There”

Teacher

“To Walk from Here to There”

To walk from here to there requires a lane,
A path, direction, velocity in will to be
At some road’s end with courage then to see
Oneself complete and whole within the frame,
At times the fame of a desired point from which begins
The process once again toward yet another goal.
Acceptable as choices may unfold
Today, there turns the wheel that fortune spins
To cast a second, and perhaps a third selection.
Courage once again must come to see beginnings
In the ends, and visa versa to the winning
Of a goal that is, or so it seems, a mere reflection
Of a devotion much greater than a meagre mind
Contains, and less than facile circumstance defines.
