Over The Line

This tedious crawl,
Slow and deliberate
Drains the last dregs
Of my resolve.

Edging over this line
One step after the other,
Patiently and steadily
Is the only way
To completion.

This arduous path
And ending it well
Holds a truth.

An unfolding promise.
Hidden quietly away,
Tucked into my heart.

That soon…
This too will pass…

I will inch my way
Towards my future,
Into a time of rest
And peaceful ease.
