Muscles shake as lungs burn

the fire before the breath

every day a small step closer

to freeing the trapped self

progress is a journey

not a treadmill nor a wheel

but a somewhere

our inner compass takes us

though we travel without sight

we cannot see nor measure

the gradual movement

we only recognize it

as years unspool

and the past reaches our rear view – Caroline A. Slee
