Journey’s End by David Wilson

Journey’s end?

The sharp crack of a shot

Neither heard nor felt



Journey’s end?

The cold embrace

A single panicked gasp

Lost in inky seas


Journey’s end?

The tramp of feet

On dusty roads

Rumour for a map


Journey’s end?

Razor-sharp wire

And hard faced men

Barriers to compassion


Journey’s end?

The drawn out hours

And days of waiting

For crowded bus or train


Journey’s end!

A helping hand

The generosity of strangers

A new journey begins
