Pilgrimage by Stepfada

Poem

The land has voyaged
Through thick & thin
To cater breath
For species to breathe

We’ve made our effort
To vent out our living ideas
Until we’d dent surfaces
To prove that once we lived
And cultivated marks,
Proving our existence.

I still stand, unshaken!
The origami in my skin
Are folding layers
& drawing lines of age
But
I thrive to endure the weights
Of ancestral messages
Scribbled in generational pages
To pack away the fog of consciousness
And reveal that:
Time is a precious machine
To record the contents of our beautiful memories.
Rest in pilgrimage,
Because life belongs to those
Who keep going for a good cause!
