Long Haul

my straight back  
hurts
on these long stretches
I cannot see
the road ahead

moving
in one direction
the blood that keeps on going
round, round
and round again

the pain in my lungs
I am no superhuman
brick walls
they hold me out

it doesn't matter
which turn
I take, I know
the destination lies ahead
