the long road

the road is long
they say
a marathon
an odyssey
keep at it!
keep going strong!

let me off
this road i say
i don't want
to live
on any street
or highway

give me a nest
in a tree
or a den
under a stone
let me find
my kin
my kind
my furry friends
or feathered tribe

there is no exit
is their reply
there is no nest
keep driving doing
what you do best

i yawn
slow down
stop in a shadow
along the street
curl like a snail shell
fall asleep
and in my dreams
my kin i meet
