The Long Trek Home

The long trek home 
Took longer than I had planned
It only goes to show
Time takes you where you stand
It does not wait
It does not heed
It does not falter
It does not need
It only goes on and on and on
Like a cartoon character says:
“To infinity and beyond!”
It is a somber entity
Without feelings and peculiarities
It will not wait
It will not heed
It never falters
It never needs
This brings me back
To the long trek home
It’s taking longer than I planned
To find rest for these weary bones
