by Catina Noble
The courage I started with on the journey
has nearly been exhausted and the mental
Stamina I pulled out of my suitcase
on day one, exhaled and suffocating.
Close to collapsing, but can’t let anyone
see or else they will pull me, off the trail,
I never asked before and so I hold my
breath and scribble a few words on a postcard.
Asking for guidance – not sure I could
continue and left the message under a rock-
Next twenty-four hours challenged me but
I believed in you and somehow two days later
Santiago wrapped it’s arms around me,
I wept with joy inside and out-Elle.
