one day

cycling walking whatever

downhill is easy

seemingly forever

but then

rock bottom

you resent the situation

you got yourself in


to get to the other side

too good for the crossing

but then

you didn’t see karma coming

and it hits you


like an arrow through the heart


waking up to the truths

that cause violation of virtues

dreaming wishing hoping

one day one day

one day the same as the next

putting everything you are

to the toughest test
