The Journey

by Milkman

Strolling proudly down the street
Impossible to defeat
From Claremont Middle School he came
Animals would sing his name

Heading home past shops and stores
People stopped, watched, and adored
Day and night, he would move
Leagues disappeared beneath his shoes

His feet grew heavy, but still went on
Trudging 'til the crack of dawn
No longer was he famed and awed
Fell to his knees and called to God

He longed to see the face of death
Suffering ended, laid to rest
It did not happen, he stayed alive
The walk home from school he survived
